ByHisGraceTwice—- sorry I mixed up your chemo days. Have to do better at remembering. 😞
Tuesday didn’t sound like fun. 20 trips to the throne definitely brings back not-fond memories. Keep in mind Welchol. That’s the repurposed cholesterol med being used now for diarrhea from rads and/or chemo. Hope you won’t need it, but it’s something to have up your sleeve
Herceptin causes nosebleeds? Is it from a drying of the sinuses?
Hope the dentist corrects strike #3 with your bridge.
What a day. Ouch.
Did you sleep last night?
Hoping you start feeling better real soon
I am determined to get laundry done tonight. One load done. 2nd load in dryer, fluffy dry. And last load is in washing machine. Laundry is a tough task for me. I have a front loader washer so I have to bend and twist a lot which kills my back. Probably why I put off laundry as long as possible
Ibrance has been good so far. My arthritis pains are noticeable now so I am thinking Ibrance must be shrinking bone mets lessening their pain so arthritis pain can be felt. That’s my theory and I am sticking to it.
Did I mention my Vit D levels had dropped again? I would suggest for everyone to ask to have their Vit D levels checked when bloodwork is ordered. I know a lot of Stage 4 people have a lower than normal level of Vit D. I don’t know if the cancer causes the drop or if having a lower Vit D gives cancer an environment to wake up and grow?? In January my Vit D was 17 and I was put on 50,000 units once a week for 8 weeks followed by daily 800 units of Vit D. Count in May was down to 13 so I now take 5,000 IU daily. Hope that raises my Vit D
