Chemo Cycle 3, Day # 1

Aug 20, 2012 - 2 comments

This is the start of (hopefully) the last cycle. It's a possibility that they are going to take him off of the Bleo bc it's giving him problems. Getting a Doplar done on his left arm. He was complaining of pain in it so they want to make sure if it's Phlebitis or not. They are also giving him a PFT too. All of his bloodwork including his tumor markers were in good ranges except for his potassium, but nothing some bananas won't fix which all means that he is responding to the chemo well. :) Almost there...

Lymph Nodes

Abel was complaining of pain under his left armpit, so I had him lift his shirt up so i can see if anything was there. I touched the area he was saying that was hurting and sure enough, I felt palpable nodule about the size of a marble. This wouldn't bother me so badly except that this is the same side that the CT scans picked up a nodule under his left armpit along with the 2 nodules in his lungs and the docs didn't know for sure if there were malignant or not. Back then, it wasn't palpable nor painful and now it's both so I'm worried. Last week his WBC tanked again and now this nodule is there and visible.

heavy bleeding


uterine pain

Something definitely isn't right. AF was about 2 days late, took a test but I couldn't tell if it was a BFP or not and then AF came. I bled so heavily that I was going through a tampon AND a pad an hour. I am also passing large clots. It was bright red too. There was no old blood at all. Weeks before, I was having bad lower uterine pain and now this? I'm not sure what to expect, but I can only assume that are linked. I'm wondering if I just had a missed m/ it possible?

All I want to do is sleep. I have never been so tired yet I can't sleep. I feel like I switched bodies with my chemo-ridden boyfriend. Now I'm the one nauseous every day-all day, exhausted, with no appetite and headaches. oy...
