Hi everyone, I just want to say a massive apology for how I have disappeared recently without any explanation. I haven’t posted for ages, and although I have tried to muster up the energy and motivation to post I have found it difficult to keep posting so regularly since I started chemo.
My first round was on Wednesday 2nd March, and unfortunately I had quite a severe reaction to it. It was nothing life threatening or anything like that, but I felt seriously unwell almost immediately upon it being administered. I ended up being kept in ambulatory care, sleeping in the hospital hotel (yes, hotel – it is dead swanky, I’ll go into that soon!) and having to attend hospital daily from Wednesday to Monday, instead of Wednesday to Friday or Saturday as originally planned
But! I am feeling much better now and have been back to my normal self for the last few days, which is nice because it means that I will have a nice week and a half of feeling brilliant before chemo kicks me back again. It is good to be able to go out and see people again, after I completely hid myself away for the week after chemo because I felt so unwell. My hair is beginning to go slowly, and although it isn’t noticeable I have a lovely aura of floating hair that has fallen out around me everywhere I go. They told me it would be three weeks so I guess it’s a little early – the only thing I’ve ever done early!
I will be posting soon about my egg harvest very soon, and I will be doing my best to cover that before I move on to tackling chemo. I am also aware I have still posted nothing about proton therapy treatment, so sorry about that too. Basically I have a LOT to catch up on and I promise to cover these things soon, but for now I just want to say that I may be posting less often than normal.
Chemo is hard and my brain is scrambled because of it, so blogging takes a lot more time and energy than normal. But I haven’t forgotten about all you beautiful loyal readers, and I shall be returning soon!
