First day after the new chemo
Wednesday, February 09, 2011
So far, not feeling worse on the Naveline than I did on the Velban. Felt a little crampy last night, but I had that with the Velban too; sitting with a heating pad helped. As with the Velban, I had some heartburn last night, but it wasn't as bad as it was with the Velban, and I didn't have as many hot flashes during the night either as I did with the Velban.
Today I am just a little tired, and a little uncomfortable because the Miralax hasn't worked yet, but that is normal for me too; it usually takes a couple of days for it to work. Because of the gastroparesis, I have to eat a low fiber diet, and the chemo causes constipation. I had a headache for part of the day, but I think it's from the weather, not the chemo. I think if the headache was caused from the chemo, I would have been feeling that last night.
Very cold today with brutal wind chills; didn't go out for the mail today; tomorrow is suppose to be the same. Saturday we are supposed to get up to 36°F; that would be nice! Then I could get get out for a walk. Poor birdies outside need their suet holders refilled, but that will have to wait til at least Friday when it's a little warmer.
I did my Leslie Sansone Power Mile today. It looks like for the time being, at least, the new chemo isn't going to interfere much with my workouts.
Since my hair will most likely at least be thinning out again, and I might possibly be losing it, I ordered a new wig today, a shorter one for the warmer weather. I got a good deal on it too. In the Paula Young catalog, it was originally $69, on sale for $39. I got a code via email for an extra 30% off any item, making it $27.50; with the shipping, it will be under $35. I am getting this one, in honey blond with highlights.
