I hope your tummy was feeling good enough so you could enjoy your soup!
Today was my first really good eating day since getting chemo last Thursday. It always feels good to be able to start eating again.
You'll have to let me know if your chemo and prescription mix really makes you gain weight. I can't keep the weight on me! I guess it doesn't help that I only feel up to eating fresh fruit for a couple of days immediately afterwards, though. I've been eating lots of watermelon, too, but I'm hoping all the moisture in the watermelon is helping keep my fluids up. I'm constantly thirsty, yet it seems so difficult to drink.
Keeping fingers crossed for you that the Neulasta shot doesn't make you feel achy! My back is starting to sing me a little song tonight so I think my shot is starting to kick in. I just hope my jaw doesn't ache for two days like last time.
I think my next chemo is July 31st. I chose Thursdays, because the chemo takes about a day to a day and a half to hit me. So I'm able to work on Friday semi-decent. And then I can spend the entire weekend resting. I was really hoping the weekend would be enough, but I'm finding Monday and Tuesday to be really bad for trying to think. But I'm coming along faster than I did the first time around so hopefully tomorrow won't be too bad.
I added an extra week into one of my cycles because I need to be able to pick up my son from camp in August. So I should be finishing up mid-October. I have a lot of decisions to make before moving on to the radiation though. Since I'm BRCA1, I should consider a double mastectomy - and I'm told reconstruction could go easier if I have it done before I do the radiation. I just haven't been able to wrap my brain around any of that part of it yet.
