My wbc jumped from 0.8 yesterday to 2.9 today!  My 48 hr cultures are negative so far. 

Feeling a little stronger and finally beginning to move,  but very weak.  My mouth is a crying shame : terrible thrush and too many mouth ulcers to count. Oncologist said I really need to work on it. I am doing the baking soda /salt rinses and using magic mouthwash.  Also on diflucan. If anyone has any suggestions that helped them, please let me know. 

But enough whining... I truly am so grateful to be home and getting better. Love you all and Happy Mother's Day!!

So glad you're home:) Happy mothers day!!!!!  Besides  the soda/salt rinse I used ACT alcohol free mouth wash, it helped me, I brushed, flossed and used the ACT every time I ate anything.  I always got thrush for the first 7 to 10 days after every round, it sucks!

and Happy Mothers Day. I did the biotene mouthwash and salt water rinces with the sores. Never got thrush. Hopefully these se will get better. I wonder sometimes why the se are are as bad as the disease.

Hugs and prayers,

sorry I missed this post, CC. I have been busy with projects and haven't been on in a few days. I am glad you are home. I hope your Mothers Day is extra special this year!

I pray those mouthsores go away~ I get sores when I am ultra stressed about something. I started taking L-Lysine 500mg and it keeps them at bay. It helps your immune system.

Hi Cynthia,  

I am really happy to hear that you are home now and feeling somewhat better.  I hope it just goes up from here for you.

I had mouth sores when I was undergoing chemo and used the magic mouthwash.  My dentist also recommended Biotene mouthwash.  It doesn't have alcohol and keeps your mouth moist and cool for a while (or at least it did for me).  You may want to give it a try.  It is not prescription, you can find it with all the other mouthwashes in the pharmacy.

Take it easy and feel better,

Happy Mothers Day, CC.  Glad you are feeling better, but sorry for the SEs.  They are no fun. I wish I had a magic potion for them. xoxoxo Lynn

My onc gave me peridex, I had thrush every treatment and used nystatin.  I have never heard of anyone here using peridex but it really helped me. I had fevers on taxol, lasting 6 days until the day before the next treatment, than after about 4 treatments they went away. Hoping you stay out of the hospital, and your body stops objecting to the treatment!
