Chemo again

The 5-FU flush was OK this morning - it took longer for the antinausea drug infusion and the line flush than the actual chemo. I have been feeling slightly nauseous all day, even before the chemo, and when I told the nurse she said it was almost certainly psychosomatic, given that I have had very little nausea in the past weeks.

In any case, I have had to take a Pramin this afternoon.

I have made a big pot of minestrone (I don't think it's possible to make a small one) for dinner tonight. I have to fast from midnight and be at the hospital at 7 am. I hope the nausea doesn't happen tomorrow morning, because I'm not supposed to even take a sip of water.

We went to visit Martin after my chemo. He seemed a bit more settled than he was on Monday, but is still complaining of pain. His abdomen is still very distended and he is still having trouble with his bowels and his urination. Helen is going to see him after school tomorrow, and I/we will visit him on Saturday - I don't think I could manage it Friday after both radio and chemo therapy.


  1. Wishing you well with your treatment Joan, and I do hope your son heals quickly. Will check in when I get back from the mountains okay. Keeping you in my prayers.....:-) Hugs

  2. I suffer from chronic pain and my doctor prescribe many medications such as paracetamol were not strong enough to ease my pain. Findrxonline found in a drug that could ease my pain, called hydrocodone. I bought it online without a prescription, but with control because of side effects.

  3. Saying a prayer for you and yours tonight.
