Today is day 5 following my first chemo treatment, and I have been sicker than a dog. It hit 48 hours after treatment and hasn’t stopped since…flu like symptoms, nausea, chills, body aches, but worst of all are the headaches which I finally couldn’t take any longer. This morning I called the oncology doctor on call for the weekend, and he immediately put me in for blood work which I had done within 45 minutes to check my white blood cell counts. We should know if those came back too low by later this afternoon. He also said I should have a CT scan of my head next week while I am in the hospital. He prescribed morphine to get me through until I can see my regular oncologist Monday morning. I felt like I was fainting, like my whole head was getting cold and clammy and I was delirious with headache pain. Now am headed for bed the rest of today. I sure hope this passes soon – I am sleeping my life away on phenergan (anti-nausea medicine) just to get relief from the head pain. Once I awaken, it throbs beyond control. Hope the morphine does the trick! Thanks for your prayers.
