Well, I had chemo on Tuesday which is why I haven’t written. This time, the treatment was Carboplatin and DOXIL. Only I didn’t get as much DOXIL as my doctor wanted me to have so I may not have as good of a response this time around.
But if you want to gauge the success of the treatment on the amount of side-effects, then I should be cured! I felt good the first two days, thanks to the heavy-duty steroids and IV anti-nausea meds. But today ~ WOMP! The nausea hit hard. I am trying to keep it at bay and I am about to make my second call to the Oncology nurse for more information if the nausea doesn’t settle down a bit. Maybe I need to go and have a little bite of something. This nausea is probably caused by the amount of Carboplatin that I have had over the last three years….. So, I ‘ll just power through…
