My minimum is 64 ounces or half-a-gallon.
I've had at least 64 oz. water today. I started off counting but then had water in cups in the waiting room and got off track with the amount but I've at least had that much from my own water bottles.
For reference, here is a list of the top 10 generic drug manufacturers
Thank you, I looked it up and my generic is made by the second name on your list.
Day one of radiation and capecitabine is almost complete. I didn't get any nausea with the medicine but I've only had one dose. Is that one of the things that accumulates and you feel it later? I think at least the diarrhea part will come later but for now, things are okay.
The time on the table at my appointment was longer than normal as they had to complete the set up appointment before doing the actual radiation. It was hard to hold my arms in position and they fell asleep but I managed to get through it. I was fidgety but started counting seconds in my head to try to not think about it so much. It won't be that long next time so it should be easier.
I asked again about sitz baths and peri/bidet bottles but they act like they've never heard of someone asking that question before. I thought maybe I asked the wrong person last time but that must be something that office doesn't contemplate. I will order some off of Amazon, which I should have done before now.
I've tried to eat more today but am still lacking in calories and protein even with greek yogurt and protein drinks. I will keep at it and figure it out. I feel so full already but need to eat soon to take the last dose for today.
I didn't ask if it was okay to take Tylenol or anything but I'm feeling a headache coming on. I think I can make it through dinner and capecitabine and head on up to bed before long. I meant to get out and walk this afternoon but got sleepy and laid down. I couldn't fall asleep though so that might be part of the headache feeling, too.
