So its been exactly a week since i got my first dose if chemo and i definitely didn’t know what to expect. Chemo was kind of one of those things i thought i would go, get the injection and come home and be perfectly fine, little did i know. I was sent home after my first injection and i was back in the hospital within 2 hours violently ill. The chemo was really taking effect to my body, but i was lucky Sick Kids saved a room for me just incase i needed it. I stayed in the hospital for the next two days while i got the remaining dosages of my chemo, and they monitored my pain level. Even though its been a full week its only felt like a day or so, sleeping through your days can get pretty confusing
So only one week after my first chemo things are starting to look forward. Although the chemo is making me feel sick and weak and nauseated, at least we know its doing its job. Id much rather push through the pain and know that its really working, then just be guessing.
