Yes, I am in round 3 of chemo. The way this works is I went in Thursday morning and they infused a particularly strong combination of chemo meds for 4 hours. I believe it's called CIS Platinum or something like that. They need to administer that under the watch of oncology RN's. Then they hook me up to a mechanical pump and bag with a milder combination of chemo meds. This I wear around the clock for 4 days and then go back in and have it removed. It's truly a hassle wearing the chemo pump and PTN feeding rig at the same time. It's hard enough walking around with all this crap attached to me, but sleeping is the real challenge. My oncologist wants me to do a 4th round in a few weeks as this is a very aggressive form of cancer. After round 4 I am scheduled for CT scans and a PET scan to determine if I'm ready for surgery. God, I hope so. I'm sooooo tired of the treatments, lab work and other BS. It seems like I'm either at the hospital or having to deal with a home healthcare worker every day now. I can see how some people just throw in the towel.
Anyway, today is not too bad of a day..... just mild nausea but at least I've got the pain in check.
Again, I really appreciate your prayers and concern. It means the world to me.
Here's a few pics from the infusion center getting ready for round 3. Don't be alarmed by my weight loss.
