Sorry for the lack of updates but I've been back in hospital for the last few weeks. I'm out for a few hours this afternoon but I have to be back by 6pm.
I turned up for my chemotherapy as arranged but my blood count was so low they decidede to admit me and give me a blood transfusion before doing anything. There was also the matter of the blocked feeding tube. This was dealt with by a replacement which was put in under sedation. I've been in hospital since then as I'm having constipation problems which is translating into vomiting and they don't want to let me go home until that's dealt with.
To top it all, my portacath had to be removed. This wonderful device allowed intravenous administration of drugs and fluids without the need for needles in veins. Unfortunately, it became infected and had to come out. This has meant having to put a canula in an arm when they want to give me IV stuff and given the state of my veins, that's not a pleasant affair.
And my hair is falling out.
