Started a new bone drug; pic of new wig
Tuesday, February 22, 2011
Today I spent about half the day in the clinic, it was time for my monthly oncologist appointment, and for my Zometa. My oncologist switched me from the Zometa to Aredia today; both are pretty much the same kind of drug (for the bones) but the Aredia is easier on the kidneys. The infusion takes longer too; the Zometa only took 20 minutes, and the Aredia takes 2 hours. I will get that drug once per month like I did the Zometa.
I also had my chemo again. This was the 3rd week, so that means next week is my week off! My blood counts are good enough too, that I don't even have to go in for lab work next week either.
Feeling some stomach pain right now; I think it's because I didn't take my lunch time dose of my GP meds, I remembered to bring a lunch along with me, but forgot the meds, which I am supposed to take 15 minutes before a meal. Without the meds, the food stays in my stomach longer than it should.
I took a picture this morning of myself in my new wig; and before I get comments telling me I should "smile", I was not smiling in this picture because I was tired.
