A few weeks late, but I finally got my fourth treatment today. Hooray! (Or maybe I shouldn't be saying hooray about purposefully putting poison in my body? Such a weird thing to be happy about, but oh well, lol!) It is nice to feel like I'm back to fighting, and it was also really nice to record a temp of only 98.2 at the doctor's office this morning.
The surgery seems to be healing well, and it definitely did the trick with the fever. I didn't realize how much running that fever was affecting me, but I have felt so much better since it has been gone! Very thankful that the surgery does seem to have addressed the problem.
After 5 weeks, I felt like I was back to day one in getting the chemo. Since the infection kept flaring up throughout the first 3 cycles, I am curious/nervous about what will happen now as to whether the infection and/or fever will come back, etc. I also wonder if the side effects will be different now or what to expect, but hopefully, I will feel better overall.
Okay, nausea is kicking in more so I better stop writing and get some crackers. Hope everyone has a good week, and that you manage to avoid any last minute shopping craziness!
