Wednesday was to be my last chemo treatment but it didn't go as smoothly as it should have. Just a little reality check telling me that I shouldn't get too complacent I guess.
My porta-cath (which was supposed to be the answer to all my problems) decided to get a blood clot in it which didn't seem to want to clear of its own accord so they once again tried to access veins in my hand and arm - no luck at all so they gave up. They then injected some anti-clotting serum into my porta-cath but didn't hold out much hope for it working before they day hospital closed at 5 pm but it did!! Thank goodness. So they commenced my treatment and then transferred me down to the acute oncology ward until I was finished.
So hopefully this chemo course is now finished and I hope they don't want to give me any more. Have appointments set up for another assess and blood tests and are also awaiting an appointment for a scan to check whether there is still any residual cancer. But they don't know that I have decided there is nothing there at all!! This is all holding up my operation to reverse my ileostomy - can't wait to get rid of that ghastly bag!!
Feeling okay at present so hope I don't get any yukky days this time. As I'm presently on steroids to prevent sickness I have my lovely red cheeks which makes me look a picture of health!! I'm drinking water by the gallon to help to quickly flush it all through my liver and kidneys.
Slow progress, but progress all the same.
