The third session of carbo/caelyx. My veins are bad, they don’t want to take another needle in. First two tries – not a chance. Third try – nearly fainted, but we’re good, we’re in. Unfortunately, this got blocked at the very end of chemo infusion. Nurses had to remove it and try again. I am tired and I really have had enough. My brain and my body are defending. It’s time to talk to the doctor about getting PICC Line or Port.
My chemo dose was decreased so I thought I would be here for 2, 3 hours. At the end due to needle problems, delay with chemo delivery to the ward and the extra portion of magnesium I have spent in hospital 6 hours.
I am at home now exhausted.
