Calling all Australian Sisters!

I'm in Canberra and have just done my second chemo treatment.  I'm have 3 cycles of FEC then will have 3 cycles of Taxotere and 12 months of Hercepten.

It might be nice to see how many of us are in Oz and if we aren't too far away from eachother try to organise a meeting.

Trish,

Bravo on the IDC - I hate them with a vengeance - prolonged use assoc with higher infection rates so you were SPOT on! They don’t take them out when short staffed because it means they have to assist pts but that is just crap...it needs to be documented again and again until the adm powers adeq.support the RNs.

It will be interesting to see what his Hb is - it might get be low if Bp a problem.

He will feel better once all plastic is out and he manages a good night sleep. Food in hospitals is average, if you can take a few high protein meals it will help. Consider sticking him on a high potency multivitamin - for iron to be absorbed you need need Vit C

Rehab is a good idea if they can arrange it. Even short term.

Hang in there it will get better.

Wildplaces, I went in today and he had a walk on his "sticks" and went really well. Walked a lot further than I would have expected, then sat up in a chair for around 15 minutes before I put him back into bed. About 2 hours after that I helped him into the shower and he wasn't well at all - visibly shaking all over. I got him washed and dry as soon as I could and he kept thinking he was going to throw up. That passed once he was back in bed. His blood pressure was up today - to 95 over 70, so a big improvement.

He's not hungry at all, I'm having problems getting him to eat at all. I made him promise to eat the salad they left at lunch time.

Funny you mention the constipation - yes I know the opioids he's on (Targin and endone) will cause that. He's always constipated, for him going 2 or 3 times a week is normal. He's on movichol already. Wouldn't iron tablets make that worse?

The physio says he'll go into the rehab ward tomorrow, so at least I won't have to worry about him coming home too early. She says he's pretty much where she would expect him to be at this stage. I'm just worried about his nausea and shakiness.

Now - I'm a bit strung out! Worried about him to the point I'm not feeling too well myself.

Trish

Trish,

It all sounds pretty normal. The shower reaction is most likely in context of low BP. The thing to worry would be cardiac BUT he would have had symptoms during the walk, which he was fine for! So it’s unpleasant but it will probably not happen again.

Would he eat/drink protein drinks/smoothies/milo/sustagen - I am not a huge fan long ter, I think chewing matters but in the acute phase they help.

Iron can cause constipation it’s why I suggested a multivitamin rather than Fefol.

It sounds like he is a good place - so take care of yourself - a bit like the emergency 🚨 in flights -your mask on first!🙂

Hi all

Trish it's good to know that your Husband has had his surgery now and is recovering. I felt so crappy and looked it too and a few days later came really good, the Nurses couldn't believe how much that I'd improved, hopefully he might do the same.

I have an appointment on Monday with an Oncologist at the hospital where I had my surgery which is heaps closer to my place than the hospital that I had my other chemo in. It will be great not having to go as far plus it's a smaller hospital which will be better. I wasn't very happy with the oncologist at the other hospital.

I'm still getting better each day and even went and saw Mum today which is a 45 minute drive and quite tiring. I've also applied for sickness benefit again as I'm trying not to use my Long Service Leave.

Carol - you are always in my thoughts ((((hugs)))) to you too.

Roo, glad you are feeling better - and yes a good howl can be soooo good :-)

Well, the patient came home yesterday and is doing fairly well. At least now that he's off pretty much all the pain meds, he's not paranoid. He was convinced everyone (including me) was plotting against him, and keeping him in hospital against his will! He's much better now and alert and moving around well. He took some pain meds last night, it was a big day for him, and he said he was feeling much better this morning.

Delvzy, i am so sorry that this is happening and I hope they get to the bottom of this soon, thinking of you.

Trish, I am so glad hubby is home.. onward and forward now.

Roo, enjoy your grand daughters 4th birthday.... yes, they are my reason as well to keep going.

My middle grand daughter has come down with whooping cough 3 weeks ago even though she was immunised. She was only diagnosed as a Coeliac last December. She is having a very bad case of whooping cough and not going to school for at least another week. She has been in hospital twice in the past week with abnormal liver function test in her blood test and now she has pneumonia.... hopefully just complications from whooping cough although my daughter in law who is a RN thinks there maybe something more sinister. hoping she is wrong. I am on my way there now to give mum a break.

I am feeling the best that I have felt in well over a year now, so hopefully this Xeloda will be my friend for another few years lol.

hugs to everyone

Hi all

Trish when I was in hospital one of the drugs that I was on gave me halluciations. It was so bad that I thought 2 of the Doctor's where plotting against me, then it got worse, I thought that I was dying then I died. It was very scary, your hubby sounds like he had something similar.

I start my chemo next Wednesday, the same chemo as last time so I know what I'm in for. I'm having 8 doses instead of 12 like last time. I saw my surgeon as well and he's happy with my progress. I have a PET scan on Monday to see if there's cancer else where.

Thanks everyone for your support.

Hubby still going well, he's moving well and while he still has his "sticks" he doesn't need to put any weight on them - actually he only uses one now. He's looking forward to Saturday when I give him his last injection into the tummy (to prevent blood clots), my role as a nurse will be over! Lol.
