Yesterday was really quite uneventful. I was pretty nervous going in, but the nurse I had was wonderful. She went through everything she was going to do, and put into me. Then we went over a list of possible side effects, and if I ever had ANY questions she said to call the office had someone running phones 24/7, and they could call in a prescription for pretty mucn anything I could come up with.
They started me with anti-nausea meds before all my chemo drugs, and so far so good on that end. The steroids that I take give me a boost of some energy, so I'm trying to do a bit of straightening up this morning while Logan and Richard went to Lowe's. I might even attempt to take a shower, yikes!!
The worst part of the whole day was the Lupron shot in the butt, that was a bit sore, but better today.
But I'm SO glad that first one is out of the way. About the only things I'm experiencing is some serious cotton mouth, but nothing some liquids and dry mouth toothpaste won't fix.
So, I guess so far so good. The nurse said it will probably be two weeks to the day of my first treatment that my hair will fall out, while I know it's temporary, I'm unsure how I'll really feel about it once it's gone. So I might go look at wigs next week, just as a back-up plan in case I change my mind.
Thanks for all the thoughts and well wishes, they really helped get me through yesterday. Hope everyone has a good weekend!
