My boy was 14 days overdue sonya, lazy creature! I think the bunged up ness is due to odansetron which is an anti nausea/sickness drug. It's given IV half an hr before the chemo starts then I have tablets to take for 3 days. Well I took one tonight and I am not going to take the one in the morning and see if I feel ok. Obviously I don't want to feel sick, but I also want to go to the loo! Especially as I know how much I have eaten over the past 3 days so it needs to go somewhere!
minks you nutter! There is no way I am tipping a bucket of water over my head for anyone (incase anyone was thinking of nominating me!) but thank you. ,I am enjoying watching everyone's videos. I am usually game for most things but not this.
hiar is making a mess now. Plus what's left on my head looks really grey! Or maybe it's just because it's thinning out.
Tomorrow I am taking Matilda out for breakfast as a treat, before she spends the afternoon at a friends house so I can have my customary nap. Yawn.
well done with your race Lotte.
minks are you going to do the lee valley 10k we did in the rain last yr? It's oct 19th this yr, my wedding anniversary. I haven't totally ruled it out.......and you would definitely beat me this yr
Yesterday I was doing surprisingly well. I went out to the shops, for coffee, did some cooking etc, today I just have zero energy and a bit of a headache. I am supposed to take codeine for headaches, not ibuprofen or paracetamol, but it don't want to because I haven't been to the loo for 2 days now, which is not normal for me! I really don't want to get as bunged up as last time, but then I also don't want to spend the night on the loo like last time after I went too far the other way! So I actually managed to drink 3 glasses of movicol yesterday, but don't think I will manage it today, I am on senna, psyllium husks and eating more fruit and veg and high fibre food than you can imagine. I am resisting the lactulose because I think that's what caused the issues last time. Any advice peeps?
i even made myself a runners world smoothie yesterday- banana, spinach, milk, coconut oil, almond butter and chocolate. It was actually ok......but again don't think I could face it today!
Don't know lotte, but website says fairly flat. I thought it was just many laps of hyde park all day, clearly not....I see it skirts the edge of richmond park which has at least one hill. Its sonyas neck of the woods more than mine.
Just taken sleeping drugs to combat the insomnia from the steroids. In addition to the meds from last time I also now have a litre of mouth wash and 180 codeine tablets.........l'll try not to take them all at once. Time to gargle........
TTid - yes, it takes ages! Both mine were exclusively breast fed and Matilda was never efficient and stayed small, Eric was incredibly efficient and fed off both sides almost immediately, draining me, and grew huge! I would say it is more baby dependent than Mummy dependant.
My neighbour just brought round chicken korma and homemade naan Hope I feel like it tomorrow night as have already planned tonights meal.
so not looking forward to tomorrow and the next few days. One of my friends is meeting me at the hosp tomorrow so we should get a decent catch up in-between nasty things happening to me.
