My onco says...


My onco says that my drippy, slightly bloody nose and raw throat, and digestive issues are from the irritation to those membranes from the chemo. Not serious, but really uncomfortable. Took a Tylenol, some Imodium, saline spray to nose and all better now! I missed that warning that this may happen so was just surprised. I am learning from here to drink lots of Gatorade during and after chemo helps as does sucking ice during infusions, and will do that next time. I am doing all the tips next time to minimize the SE. It is saving my sanity. I get dose 2 on 8/29. Telling myself do not be scared, the actual infusions were a breeze, it's after that sucks.
