Thanks for your thoughts, I was laying low, but much better now!
I am Scottish, but live in Jersey and it's lovely and sunny down here today.
The lemon and ginger soda is lovely and I am stocking up already for cycle two.
I am feeling back to my normal self on day 10, even managed a couple of glasses of wine last night. I did have a funny taste in my mouth for a couple of days, but my appetite was not affected at all. Think the heartburn I had was upsetting my stomach and eating helped. I am now taking pantoprazole and the heartburn has completely eased.
I am off for an echocardiogram and ecg in preparation for Herceptin and looking forward to it, hoping they will let me see the screen as I am fascinated.
I hope you are feeling well today, are you still getting the tingling in the head. I'm still getting no symptoms, but it'll happen at some point.
I'm just catching up with posts as I've been lying low.
The GCSF I have to take is a once off injection Neulasta which is done 24 hours after chemo. I've had back and hip pain in the last 24 hours, but not sure it is GCSF related as I did the injection a week ago. I'll go read the side effects in more detail and will mention to my nurse in case it's related to something else. I mentioned on another post that I was now on pantoprazole owing to heartburn and gastric reflux and joint pain is an uncommon reported side effect.
My side effects went haywire around day 4 and 5, but not enough to stop me eating! I discovered a lemon and ginger soda that marks and spencers do and this tastes really nice and was good when I started to feel a bit of nausea on day 4.
Glad to hear diprobase is helping your rash!
I've had no tingling on my head yet, but I'm sure that will happen at some point.
Good to read your posts as always. I've kept a bit of a diary for myself, so I can compare with my next cycle.
Hope everyone else is well.
I love your updates!!! Been so busy the past week and a bit so I haven't always been able to keep up with them real time but I think you're performing a fantastic service for anyone about to go through chemo. Such great detail, even if sometimes it is a bit TMI!! 😂 xx
