So here's the day-by-day after chemo...
Monday - chemo round one. A l
little headache, no appetite, nausea...all pretty much OK with meds.
Tuesday - Neulasta shot. Tired. Jim had to drive us all the way home. Little appetite, but OK overall.
Wednesday - able to work at home several hours. Tired but OK. Little appetite, but did eat light dinner! Friend visited overnight. Second short walk of the week!
Thursday - doing well. Attended two meetings, worked in my office. Ate pretty well...lightly. Tired at end of day.
Friday - crushed! So tired. No appetite. Slept all day. Achy. Low grade fever. Headache. Hard to even drink water. Feel awful! Not able to work as promised.
Saturday - better. Two naps, no walking outside, eating a little. Think yesterday was about the Neulasta. If so, hate it!
Sunday - better again. Can keep my head off pillow for a couple of hours at a time. Very limited appetite. Opened mail for the week...thank goodness nothing urgent. Weight down 6 lbs. this week. I called it the chemo diet - maybe so.
Was hopeful at the beginning of the week that this might be relatively OK to manage, but the end of the week changed my mind. Not looking forward to next round in 8 days. Jim is my stalwart...hard to think about this without him, not sure how I'd manage! From scrambling eggs to doing laundry, to taking me to appointments, so many things. I am soooo lucky!
Hope you are all having a great summer!
