I have gone the longest amount of time since I started this chemo without having to stop. The blood pressure issue seems to be much better. Hope it stays that way.
I am suffering from a bit of fatigue. I found out there are numbered levels to fatigue. I think I am at a 2. I can still do some basic housework and get myself dressed, but I can't seem to do a lot of walking. Walmart and Costco...they are out for now. I have never used the riding carts...but I may have to start. I did go out today for a bit....picked up some ribbon and stuff...came home totally pooped! The doctor feels this may level out a bit when my body gets used to all the meds I am on.
One of the things that seems so strange to me is that one of the known side effects of this chemo is hot flashes. Now I can have hot flashes on my own....so I thought I would be in for it....but it seems, at least right now, I am so cold.
I also told my doctor that I would no longer take the iodine for the CT scan. I just get too sick and they will have to do it without it.
I am looking forward to the weekend. Next week I have 3 days at doctor's offices...I don't know how my life got to this...but it is what it is!! Have a great weekend and I will talk to you next week. And as always...thank you for your encouragement and prayer.
