I have got some epsom salts in so yes will use them, the aches in my legs were so bad last night I slept in my anti thrombotic stockings which helped. Wasnt expecting leg aches with FEC. Oh right, just normal symptoms then, what a learning curve it all is, thanks so much CK
Hi CK, welcome...thank you for the help you can give us....can I ask did you get heartburn at all? had such severe sickness yesterday ended up having the out of hours district nurse out after 5 bouts in 5 hours, sicking tablets back up and had an injection in my thigh...today I feel really nauseous but wasnt sick, but managed to eat a tiny bit, Emend doesnt even seem to be working...I am getting heartburn now, severe aching legs, flushed face and skin is like it has been in stinging nettles, lets hope day 3 is better lol.
Good luck for Thursday Sam34. Hope your cold clears up. Day 2 of my chemo and after a severe day of sickness yesterday, not been sick today, felt very nauseous with heartburn and leg aches but still cant eat much. I seem to have felt a lot sicker than many so my advice is to try and get some good anti sickness in place just in case you are unlucky.
Good luck with everything Runnerbean. I was dreading thr picc line as they can never find a vein usually but this is different. First you have an ultrasound to see if it can be done, after that you are given a local aneasthetic and I just felt a bit of discomfort, a pushing sensation, you then have an heart scan to check it is away from your heart, all done whilst lying on the bed, I didnt look and it was done very quickly. It is not a problem once in it doesn't restrict your arm movements. I just have to have blood thinners as I have a clotting condition. Mine is going to be flushed every week at the hospital. Easy to get the chemo through it.
Thank you Rosie for posting here your news about having come through the chemo gives us all such a lift : thank you xxxx
I am so sorry that you find yourself on this thread when recently recovering from having a baby!
The chemo treatment will pass and being here on this thread will help you through the journey as you share the ups and down side with the other ladies going through the same experiences. I am from the April 14 thread. Five of us still post regularly on the thread and we have had 3 meet ups! We share so much more than cancer now and have become very much a part of each other's lives.
Our chemo started in April 14 and 3 years later we have all made a good recovery our hair has grown and we are getting on with our lives. Some of the ladies worked through their chemo.
I hope that you have family and friends to help out with the children when you are feeling tired!
Look after yourself!
Ps thanks for other info have passed it all on to my daughter she is going to look into it before she makes any decisions I told her I have your friends email address if she wants to contact her too xx
To be honest Chaffinch17 I was expecting the opposite too, havent got anything in for diarrhoea so must get it in, will have to see which way I go. I have been given Emend a good anti sickness from reading on here, one tablet to take before my treatment and one for the 2 days after, along with mouthwash.
Hi SueW, I havent felt ill at all, my injection site has been aching but I had it in my derrière as had the PICC line in one arm, and surgery under the other arm. Good luck with it x
