....it's not like I haven't been through chemo before. It's not like I haven't read others' stories about chemo.
I took my anti-nausea patch (Sancuso) off an evening early (Weds. night instead of Thursday morning) because some of the side effects were quite distressing. Almost immediately, little nigglings of nausea started, but I avoided compazine or zofran because I wanted to avoid the annoying side effects.
However, I rather discounted the cumulative effects of chemo. Those effects that get worse after each treatment.
So, yes, the nausea is worse. I feel like I've just eaten too much. Only I feel like this constantly.
And now I have mouth sores.
This shouldn't surprise me. I know these things happen. I know they will go away. I was so focused on finishing chemo I didn't focus on surviving the three weeks after my last treatment.
