got chemo..1 more to go

The nuemega shots worked and I got my chemo yesterday!!! yahoo.

Today, I had to go for a blood transfusion cuz white blood cell count was in the toilet. But it helped with the nausea and energy level.

Now, I have to take a Procrit shot once a week to help with the cell count. And 7 more Numega shots for the platlets beginning tonite. Then four more Nuemega shots right before the last chemo. Oh fun. Just sitting here waiting for the nuemega (for the platelets) to get to room temperature so I can start mixing needles again. But so far, so good.

He did reduce my carboplatin dose so maybe that has something do to with me not feeling as bad as usual too.

5 chemos down, 1 to go. !!!!!! yipppeeeeee!!!

One more is a great but next time when you tell us that you are finished, that will be even greater.
I am glad to hear that you are feeling better even though you have to have to do all those shots.
Continue to be well.

Isn't the countdown fun?! It felt so great to be able to say one more treatment - I'm so very happy for you. Those shots sound like a real pain though. Hopefully soon, you'll be feeling like yourself again and can get out and enjoy the spring weather! Good luck with your last treatment!

Glad you only have one more. Isn't it so great to be almost done after such a long ordeal?! After all you've been through, you are due for a big celebration!

I got a lower carbo dose once with low platelets and felt better as well. I was told the lower dose was not going to make a difference in killing the cancer.

Those are some miracle drugs, aren't they? I was getting a similar drug (neulasta) that was injected on the day after chemo. I was also on Procrit for a while, too. Very grateful because they kept me on my chemo schedule. (I was having radiation at the same time as the chemo so I was doubly focused on my blood counts and pretty aggressive with my doctor in pursuing the "what do we do when my blood counts start plummeting?" questions.)

I remember how good it feels to get to the end of chemo. Emotionally, I was all over the place but it's wonderful to be finishing the treatment. You've been through so much.

Best to you,
Reply
