Today is friday, 21 August is my first chemo therapy. It’s a very early trip today, already 5:30 AM came the taxi to pick us up. My daughter is following me today.
We arrived at the hospital at 8:30, that was a quick trip! The chemo started almost as soon as I arrived. First I got drops/dextrose that took 1.5 hrs and then the chemo that took almost the same time and some liquid medicines against nausea, cortizone, and something that made me urinate every 10 minutes and finally another dextrose.
After my chemo for more than 4 hrs, we had time to take our late lunch at 1:30 PM. Finally my last radiation this week then homewards with the Ronden bus at 3:30 PM. At home again at 7:25 PM.
Aside from feeling a little of nausea, I feel ok so far. I got medicines against nausea, diarrhea and constipation.
|I bought this medicine box so I won’t miss to take my medicine.
