Topic: John 1st chemo
Well John had his 1st chemo on Tues the 9th. It lasted about 4 hours. He's getting Gemzar and Cisplatin.
Of course they gave him anti nausea drugs IV first.
That day was ok except for a burning along his vein until they diluted it more. We went home and everything was fine until morning.
He woke up with pretty bad abdominal pain and some nausea. Day 3 was worse, had to give him compazine for the nausea so he slept on and off all day. He was extremely tired. More pain than usual so we doubled up on his pain meds.
Today the nausea is lessening as well as the pain but he's still fatigued.
I'm not looking forward to the next session as the side effects will be worse each session.
Thank God my Dr. took me off work due to depression so I can be here for him.
Well i'll close for now. Next session on the 23rd. I'll keep posting as long as possible.
Best wishes for all,
