Well today is the first day of my treatment. I woke up feeling slightly nervous but that was soon out the window on the drive to the hospital.
I got seen straight away at chemo at 9am no problems finding a vein as that has been a problem in the past. The steroid injection didn’t cause any discomfort. I had cisplatin then some magnesium then some potassium. Took 4 hours and 5 minutes all together. I had about 6 trips to the toilet but I can take the machine with me so no problems there!
I took my husband with me and we was all chatting to the family in the seat next to me. It was all very relaxed and pleasant.
After my chemo I went and booked on for next week and walked down to radio. I already had a full bladder so was allowed in straight away and had my blast of radio. Checked my time for tomorrow and off I went.
All in all I was there for 5 and a bit hours and drove myself there and back. I don’t feel any different just a bit of a heavy arm.
