RE: Furry little balls of Cancer
You have bad blood, literally. It took me weeks to get any kind of stamina back after finishing.

edit: I remember going to the Unser racing museum with my dad and sister, the Monday after my first round of BEP, and I had to take my walker (since I was still recovering from the RPLND) and also sit down about every 20 steps. It wasn't my finest hour. My blood chemistry was ALL fucked up.

The Monday after my first round I was still asleep. I laid down Friday afternoon and got up on Tuesday.

So, you should've just started your third round.

Have they given you neulasta yet?

Have your pubes started to come out?

Is there enough power in heaven or earth to get you into that chair tomorrow?

You can do it!

RE: Furry little balls of Cancer
No neulasta.

I started losing my pubes a while back. I haven't lost all of them, but enough to make sneaking out a fart impossible. I've lost almost all the hair on my head. What isn't gone isn't growing, either, so it is still a weird patch work. I still have arm and leg hair. My chest hair has thinned but I still have about a half of it.

I actually feel better after two treatments this round than I did the precious rounds. I'm carrying a 1-2 degree fever that the doc isn't concerned about. The worst part is that my allergies have kicked up and I've got no nose hair to stop the flow of snot on to my upper lip.

And I have an appetite. I'm only down 5lbs. My taste buds are shot but I want to eat, so that's good.

But the insomnia is going to drive me insane.

Well, there's only 4 more liters of fluid this week, right?

So, did you make it?

RE: Furry little balls of Cancer
Made it.

The down side is that I've contracted a mix of GI Tract and Oral Mucositis, which, just downright sucks. I'm producing a ton of mucus in my digestive tract, which I'm constantly coughing up, and also have sores on the inside of my mouth, mostly on my tongue and at the back of my throat, which are painful. I've got morphine for the pain but I'm trying to use it sparingly. I'm getting no sleep with the constant flow of mucus and saliva so sleep deprivation is definitely a concern. My taste buds are almost nonexistent at this point.

My life now consists of a strict regimen of coughing up mucus, washing out my mouth with a mix of salt water and baking soda, brushing my teeth, wash out mouth again, coat mouth with a wetting gel, clean up bath tub of all the mucus I hocked up, try to cat-nap before doing it all again. Somewhere in there I make time for some diarrhea. I don't think this is gonna get better before the next round and my either delay treatment of prolong the amount of time I need to recover. I'm already considering long-term disability.

It is also said to be, in cases like mine, that the mucosis can be attributed as much to bad oral hygiene as it is the chemo, so there's that extra slap to the face as well.

Don't look up a detailed description if you want to keep your lunch.

Right now my happiness is found in home made fruit smoothies that my wife has been freezing up for me. Low acid fruits and the freezing temperature make for a soothing treat.

Mucositis. Man, even that word is awful.

You'll get better over this week.  I bet by Friday you're feeling 100% better, and maybe able to walk 4 or 5 yards, at a stretch.

At least you don't have to pack abscesses full of packing strips because they wouldn't let you heal between surgery and chemo, right?

Nah, it's more like a choice between gross shit and gross shit.  Not much ennervation once you're down below the skin.

only my extremities are completely smooth. My body still has some hair, though not enough to squeeze out a fart unnoticed.

RE: Furry little balls of Cancer
I had that yesterday. My doctor called it "Atrial Fibrillation" when I went in back in 2013. Basically, about once every 2 or 3 months, my heart goes all wonky and I feel like ass for a whole day.

I'm thinking I should probably go to the doctor and complain about it louder.
