I started Taxol today. Been here forever and still no sign yet of the finish line. Walked into TxOnc at 9:30a. I did have labs and a dr. visit, plus more problems accessing my port. Well, they couldn’t get a good blood return. Started treatment around 11:15 or 11:30. It’s now almost 4:30p and I’m one of the only patients left here. My father is here too. He’s been here with me since around lunchtime.
I’m having severe hot flashes, so they’ve had to turn down the speed of the dosage several times. Got to the point where Nurse Suzie had to steal a fan from a co-worker to make me more comfortable. I hope it’s not always like this.
