Chemo on hold for gallbladder removal & then DVT in upper extremity. Ugh.

It's certainly been an eventful 30 days. The day I returned the pump for my second cycle, I wound up back at the infusion center crumpled in a wheelchair puking my guts out in pain. Gallbladder tests ensued and, eventually, out it came (I hate, hate, hate outpatient surgeries). Four days after remov...

Re: It was 15 years ago today

I hope you had a great, maybe, given your history, even uneventful birthday.

Thank you for sharing your story and spreading hope.

he offered us the puppy for free :shock: So, Jake will be joining Bo and Woody on 8/18. He's a full little brother to my two goons. I'm going to have a third shadow in no time. We make terrible decisions. :lol: Sweet! Your pack is growing. That sounds like a great decision. Years ago I worked with ...

I like the goal of outliving the bird! A bit macabre, but in a good way. Wise choice not to get a scarlet macaw.

Re: Problems with port

I always had bloodwork taken from my arm instead of the port and that may be an option if the port is problemmatical. I think that's where I'm headed. So far four (or is it five?) nurses have tried to draw blood to no avail. The last one did get a very short blood return but by the time she had the...

Re: Problems with port

Why did they put you in a room? I've done all of mine in the chair with everyone else. They are pretty good in which to nap! It was in case I had a reaction to some of the meds/chemo. It seemed odd since I'd not read about anyone else having the first infusion in bed. It was weirdly uncomfortable b...

Re: Problems with port

How are you feeling? I've got round 7 coming up next Monday. Fatigue hit me like a ton of bricks recently, but I'm feeling so much better. It helps to know there is an end in sight! I'm feeling very good, actually. Sorry to hear about the fatigue. It bites, especially when you have kids. Hope it ke...

Re: Chemo has caught up to me yall

I'm really new here, but from reading a bunch of your posts, Amy, I can tell that you're certainly not a wimp or whiner. Your amazingly positive attitude is one of the things that gives me hope that I can do this on the days when I'm so pooped that I barely make it out of bed. I can't imagine doing ...
