On Monday, I had my 3rd treatment of ABVD chemo. For those of you who are wondering two treatments equal 1 cycle. So I have completed 1 cycle and part of cycle 2. My doctor believes I will need to do 4 cycles and then 3-4weeks of radiation.
This morning I woke up exhausted from chemo. I could barely open my eyes. On Tuesday I had my Nualasta shot to keep my blood counts up which also causes bone pain. My nurse told me to take oxycodone as soon as I felt any pain. So this morning I took it and slept all day. I did wake up long enough to eat a small lunch. I was also nauseated today and my Zofran did not seem to be working so I took the ativan. This helped but also knocked me out.
Right now I am so tired. Another Hodgkin patient said it feels like getting hit by a semi which is what I feel like now. I think I will retire in to bed. God Bless!
