Hello from Ottawa Canada...56 year old male with Low Stage 3 HPV Squamous Cancer 5.2 cms at the beginning 2 weeks ago.
Did 2 weeks of Rad so far and First week of Chemo Infusion Bottle via Picc Line. That was painful to say the least...not supposed to be but was for me. I am very tall 6 '5" longer veins than most.
So far Chemo gave me horrible nausea for 4 days (no vomiting just dry heaves) and terrible mouth sores...days later ( use Biotene mouthwash and hand held pocket sprayer).
Now the issue us the bloody Gillette Mens Razorblades coming out of my ass two weeks in...then followed by 1\2 hour of Brutal Itch from another planet!! After I take a bath to clean off the leftover poo on my Mt. Everest Tumour.
I take Clearlax and Oxycodone for pain...only 1/2 tab for now....makes me too dizzy if i take a full one....sure that will change soon....
The problem with Clearlax or Restorlax is it makes u poo 30 times a day whereas the Metamucil i used to take forces the poo into the toilet...Clearlax i cant get it into the toilet...ends up in my underwear or diapers....seem to be opting for diapers more these days.
Also developed a nasty Charlie Horse lower right leg Voltaren tylenol heating pad...nothing works to heal it. Excuse. Me currently Dizzy from Oxy....the muscle is very TIGHT why no idea....recent Ultrasound showed no blood clots...weird.
Some inventor has to develop a better larger Heating Pad...not big enough to wrap around leg!!!
Should mention drink tons of bottle water...(yeah big risk with the possible plastic nodules floating in bottles)....like many others...leaking some weird smelly mucous crap constantly....this stuff from another Planet too...the smell is 100% Gross...on my furniture now everywhere....2 weeks in.
Also have a ***BONUS Anal Fissure to boot on top of my Tumour....lovely.
Tried 'Weed' the other day first time in 35 years.....never never again...got rid of the pain and all my bodily functions aswell. Terrible stuff..2 puffs was wired for 5 hrs!!! Friend said I was Hallucinating really bad chasing Flying Goats in my apartment...must have been laced with something else....Peanut Butter and Dejon Mustard Sandwiches...sick the next day. Did have a good loooong sleep...sure needed that. Dont sleep well these days. Early Spring Sunrises dont help. No curtains in my Subsidized apartment.
Weed must be 400 x potent than when I smoked it as a teenanger.....crazy. My Dutch Onocologist at the Cancer Center at the Ottawa General Hospital told me to try it for pain. Yes pain gone...control gone.. Never never again!!!!
