So my latest update for everyone who has been reading my updates. I had my picc line put in this past Thursday. That was an experience in it's own considering they tried 2 piccs the first time with no success, but was successful with the third. Didn't help with my nerves what so ever! I started my contiuous infustion chemo on Monday along with radiation. So far all is was going well until today (third day of treatment) I woke up with a little soreness and tenderness in my right armpit area (picc arm). I went in for the usual radiation therapy then asked to speak with the nurse about the sorness. They didn't notice anything that put up red flags right away but did order an ultra sound. Found out I had a blood clot. So my picc was taken out today and my chemo was stopped until tomorrow. I fee like i'm trying so hard to be positive only to be pushed backwards to start all over again. My friends and family have been great but i'm losing the drive to keep pushing and it's only been 3 days of treatment!
Has anyone else been through something similar? I feel like it's just bad stuff happening and nothing good....
Any response or comment is appreciated!
