I have one Chemo treatment and 6 radiation treatments left to go. Would have been 5 but the lineal accelerator had a "Glitch" in it so no rads today.
The last 2 weeks has been the "fun stuff", puking up/coughing up large amounts of mucous 24/7. Sleep provided by oxycodone/Xanax/Ativan in 2-3 hour stretches through the day and night. Nausea and fatigue are my best friends.
tube feedings don't agree with me much either. Weight loss from 344 to 287. Intense mouth pain, tongue doesn't work at all for taste and hurts like hell too, swallowing only water with meds. Getting ready to have to crush up some and run them through the tube as they're too big to swallow. Can talk for about 5 minutes before the pain gets to be too much.
Almost to the end of treatment, but will be another 4 weeks before symptoms subside. Can't even think about anything but getting through the present day. Never take drinking a soda or a beer or having a meal for granted again.
