its been postponed tomorrow, my blood cell count is only 1.1 so they are giving me the next dose on Monday the 7th!! also, they are lowering the dose........I'm fine with it all as one of my main symptoms stopped happening on day 9 after the 1st dose.....the 'doc' was surprised and pleased and he said that he's glad I am feeling so well on the treatment. Its a mystery really to hubby and I.....the fact that I feel so well yet my neutriphils are so low. Oh well we can plan a few days away next week now instead of the week beginning 7th as we had previously thought. Going down to the Isle of Wight as we have some friends who live there. Need a break....you know the score....so we meet not this time Pat maybe another time hey....good luck tomorrow. love to you Nita xx
Thanks so much, Nita. Spoke to my oncologist today regarding all the side effects I'm experiencing at the moment. Don't have much energy, though. However, I'm allowing myself as much rest as I need at the moment. Hope your third chemo cycle is going okay. Mine starts next week Friday. Feels I'm only coming out of the last one and here we go again. Never mind. Neuralgia still there... Not much pain relief for this one. Soon Phoenix
hi Pat, good to hear from you again.
Had my 3rd chemo last monday my neutriphils had gone up from 1.1 to 2.6 so they went ahead although they lowered the dose slightly. gave me a further supply of ijections to boost my antibodies and have used them....now 1 week later am feeling more 'normal'. Been 'fluey' and pains in legs(you know)...
Its taken longer to recover than the 1st and 2nd times which I am putting down to the injections( my macmillan nurse says they can gave side effects) Overall I can't complain, I think I am overcoming the treatment remarkably well compared to the suffering I read about on this forum.
The isle of wight was brilliant we had a lovely time and we intend to take more breaks in between treatments.
I am praying for good news re your scan. xxx best love .xxxxxxxNita
