First week of AC chemo done...sleeping A LOT!
Monday, December 09, 2013
Well, I honestly don't have much to write about because I've been sleeping at least 18 hours a day for a week now. This new chemo is doing it's number on me. I don't feel sick (at least most of the time), I just feel ready for bed at the drop of a hat.
After sleeping all day Saturday, I did get dressed up and we went to the ball room dance. Both of us seemed to have forgotten how to dance, so we didn't dance much and left about half way through. It was nice to be out, and I don't regret going, but it didn't lift my spirits the way it did last time. At least, I didn't wear myself out. True to form, I went straight to bed as soon as I got home.
The antii-nausea drugs seem to be working. However, I did end up throwing up my dinner last night which sort of surprised me. I had some medication that I could take by just putting it under my tongue and letting it dissolve. After I took it, I was able to go back to sleep. If it happens again, I'll call my doctor, but otherwise I will just let her know about it when I see her next week before my next infusion. From here on out, I'll make sure I have had my antinausea meds at least a half hour before I eat.
I get this new chemo every other week, so I'm hoping to pick up some energy during the second week. Like I say, I don't feel sick, just really, really sleepy. I'm kind of like a hibernating bear right now!
