Today I had my day of testing. Anything you want to know about my body??? I am sure they have an answer. Blood, physical, ekg, complete eye exam, and the lovely CT scan. Seriously, I don't know if I will let them do another CT scan. The premeds are not helping the chest pain I have starting one hour after the test and lasting about 3 hours. My husband thinks it may be indigestion, but I have never had indigestion and if that is it...I don't know how people live with it. It feels like a heart attack and I am not exaggerating. I have googled it every way I know how and it appears only me and one other person have ever experienced it. They tell me at the testing place that it is not an allergic reaction because those start right away. Seriously, here I am taking every kind of poison to stay alive with cancer and I am going to drop over dead from a CT scan.
I am feeling better now though. And my eyes are finally letting me see clearly again. I really liked the opthamologist. He was speaking some German to me and I could pick some of it out. My grandparents spoke German. That was kinda fun....not like Hawaii kind of fun...but fun!
I guess they are going to give my port a treatment when I start my new chemo. They have not been able to get blood out of it. It runs in ok, but not out. Mercy. This makes me sound like an invalid. I am NOT. But maybe someone will read this with the same issue and it will help them. Anyways, there is a "treatment" that they put in for a couple of hours and it should clear up any clotting or whatever. They use heparin all the time, but that isn't helping. I hope this works because they AIN'T put another port in IF I can help it.
Ok, I guess you are probably sick of hearing my woes. I know I am!!!
Tomorrow, I am getting flowers for my pots outside. I always love the pretty colors for a few months before the horrible heat fries them!!
One Dish, Many Celebrations
