I woke up around 3am. I usually get up around 4 or so but if I wake up earlier, I will check emails and read things instead of getting my day started. Maybe that time was too long to have an empty stomach. I was trying to go back to sleep but I couldn't. I may need to take something upstairs with me at night in case I wake up so my stomach isn't empty. I had to take a nausea pill and was worried about needing more the rest of the day. I did feel nauseous but not enough to have to take another one so I think it's maybe me being anxious over it. I know I need to enjoy the next week or so before things really set in. Hopefully I can keep a good frame of mind.
I know some of you only had oral chemo on the days you had radiation. Mine is set up to take them 7 days a week so even on weekends when there is no radiation planned. The oncologist said if it got too rough, we could skip weekends. I'm hoping I will be able to do all of the treatments as planned.
I had the Xeloda for two weeks (14 days) on Adjuvant but then there is a week off. I do think that 28 days straight of it is rough stuff. I never got nausea from Xeloda though - I only got it on the Oxaliplatin.
