This round of chemo has made me more tired than last time – the good news is that my nausea is much less than last time and being totally managed by the anti-nausea meds. I will probably actually feel sicker tomorrow when the flu-like syptoms kick in (the aches and pains etc). I have slept for 12 hours each night (Friday & Saturday) and also had a 2hr sleep late yesterday afternoon, so I’m sleeping about double what I normally sleep. OH and I are usually night owls but I’m definitely not at the moment. Even sitting here having had 12 hours sleep and being woken up at 9.20am by the next door neighbours making noise, I feel I could quite easily fall back to sleep again, but if I’m not up now for my breakfast all my meds, (antinausea, steroids and pain meds) get all out of kilter.
My hair is definitely thinnner but I am still relatively unself-conscious about it.
Where they put my portacath in has just got a steri strip by my neck and a couple of steristrips by my port site – will put on another pic of that when the bruising has faded a bit more.
