hello all. I am after some advice please.
i have secondary bc in both lungs and on Friday last week I had round 11 of 12 of paclitaxol.
Sundays are usually a pretty rough day post chemo but yesterday was just horrid. I don’t usually take any anti sickness tabs on Sunday’s as the nausea has usually gone by then. Yesterday, I was just so nauseous, and with a very upset tummy too. Overnight I started vomiting, and felt generally horrid - hots, colds, shakes but no temperature. In the early hours, my husband started with what appears now to be a gastric type bug. I’ve managed to drink plenty of fluids, but struggle to eat as I have oral thrush on top!
my question is - should I call the triage number they’ve given me. It appears to be a common sickness bug and I really don’t want to be taking it into hospital do I? I’m sure the staff wouldn’t thank me in any way??
I would really welcome our thoughts please - hopefully they will help me to actually make a decision!!
thanking you hugely - in anticipation
