I was diagnosed with secondairies 2 weeks ago (liver,lung and bone) and so far had 1 chemo I am really really struggling with a destended stomach due to my live and need some advice can I ease it myself? Doc said chemo should kick in in 4 weeks or so but am so uncomfortable, I called the hospital tonight and a doc is coming to see me tomorrow about possibly getting it drained, has anyone had this if so whats it like and how long does it last???
I am suffering really bad dehydration not helped by a urine infection so been on antibiotics all week but waking at night loads really dry. I am week one into this 17 week chemo and honestly cant see me managing to complete it. I have 2 girls age7 and 4 who keep asking when mum will be better.
When will my energy levels return so I can at least take my kids to school.
