May 2017 Starting Chemo


I started my first Chemo on Thursday 25th May.

So far so good, taken all the anti sickness tabs they sent me home with.  Had a Picc line fitted and its looking really grubby, seeing the District Nurse Tuesday am to change the dressing.

Not felt sick yet but have a horrid sore throat, but no temperature.  Was a bit nervous about injecting the other meds into my stomach but was a doddle.

Feel ok, tired but then I was wide awake at 2am this morning.

Be good to chat with anyone going thru treatment.  Mines is HER2 positive breast cancer, 6 cycles of Chemo and Herceptin from 4th cycle, then look to see if it has shrunk enough  o remove without losing the breast and they have said then may need Radiotherapy.  Scarey!
