BEP Chemo Round – Day 6 – Round 1

11:30am – O:0 N:4 T:6 P:0

I thought I would update a bit while I was eating something. I am working from home today and have noticed that since I am not getting my steroid my body is really letting me know about the tiredness and nausea factor. The other noticeable thing is that I am EXTREMELY thirsty. Since I have been on IV hydration for the last week my body has grown accustomed to this level of hydration. I have been drinking as much water as I can to keep the same level going. Should be fun!

2:00pm – O:0 N:2 T:7 P:0

I got REALLY tired around 1:45pm. I needed to lay down it got so bad. I am also noticing some mouth sores.

    Yeah I noticed that my first few days home AFTER the end of hell week sucked. You aren’t getting the daily hydration and yummy premed cocktail they give you… you are all on your own. You should ask your doc for a Dex prescription, you can only take it for 2 days in a row at a time but trust me it helps. My “two days off” after hell week was xmas eve and xmas, and without the Dex I dont’ know how I would have done it. Call him NOW!
