Week 63 Day 6: Bear with me
Yay! Completed my 7th #chemotherapy and my 1st round of #FOLFIRI! All has been going so well this week!
In another 12 hours, I will be going for my 8th chemo and the 2nd round of FOLFIRI. I’m actually quite looking forward to it because it means that I am 1 step closer to where I want to be, that is to kill this damn thing #cancer. Yes, I have to admit, I almost broke down the week I had my first dosage of FOLFIRI but the 2nd week I’ve proven to you that I am the one in control. *fists in air*
I am pretty confident that I will be able to handle the 2nd round better coz I’ve noted the sequence of “events”:
A trip to the clinic for the 2.5hrs of Drip + attachment of the DragonBall (Will take a picture tomorrow for you guys).
- Not much side effects at the moment
- Appetite normal
DragonBall still attached to my #portacath.
- Constipation starts
- Appetite normal
A trip to the clinic to remove the DragonBall
- Appetite reduced
- Unable to digest well
Day 4 to Day 7
- Fatigue kicks in, peaks between Day 6-7
- No appetite
- Unable to digest
- Little diarrhoea, peaks between Day 6-7
- Depressed in the day, hallucinates at night
- Foul temper
- Every fxxk thing irritates me!
Day 8 to Day 14
- All side effects gradually subsides
You can see it is quite a roller coaster ride! Lol. As mentioned in my last post, I was quite affected mentally the 1st week of treatment and it did messed me up a bit. So I want to apologised to all my loved ones and my friends first, if If at anytime during my treatment I start being an asshole, please do bear with me I may not be at the correct state of mind but It won’t be long! I promise!
I am pretty satisfied with my first round of FOLFIRI, just that I did not exercise much during this round, hoping to add in some for this round of treatment. Wish me luck and bear with me!
