I went in to chemo yesterday and was sent home with a pump so far not many side effects. A little nausea but got meds to help control that. My mouth is a little tight but not painful thank goodness for that so far. I had two days of radation so far I but in couple weeks I will be sore from that. I bought aquaphor not sure if it will help. I havent had burning pain yet when able to pee but that will happen in few weeks coming I am sure. I had history of uti in past. Does Chemo reaction happen when first get a pump on or afterward. The Chemo nurse said my blood platelet will drop in about 3 wks. I am worried that the radiation will be my down fall. So far able to get up and around but coming weeks I am sure I will be fatigue. Any suggestion to stay more comfortable for my anal/vulvar area while I am going through radation in these next 6 wks.
