My neutropenia is resolved (thanks to Neuasta kicking in). I remain in the hospital with infection (septic). My blood cultures keep coming back positive (after port removed). I now have septic emboli in my lungs too. While my hospital stay has been positive overall (staff and physicians have done an amazing job). All I wanna do is go home. Starting to feel like I'm in Hotel California.
Anyway, once discharged, I'll be on IV antibiotics delivered via a PICC line for 6 weeks. The wound where my port was is packed (wet to dry) every day. Needless to say, I'm done with chemo (only had one TC left). I remain positive that I will no longer get chemo, but nervous that this infection will never end. Life changing...
I wish everyone the best in your continued journey. Stay strong.
