Day -3 started out really well but turned bad quickly.
They started me on another chemo today to drop my imunity to zero that requires eating ice chips for 2hrs to prevent mouth sores.
After chemo and lunch, I went to the gym to knock out a mile on the treadmill. I was a little tired but wasn’t a problem. When I came back to my room I was really hot so I relaxed while waiting for the nurse to cover my line so I could shower.
I was able to shower with little effort till the end when I started getting lightheaded which isn’t a new thing for me while I’m on chemo. I pulled the alarm for the nurse to let her know. She showed up, asked what was wrong, and that was all I remembered when I came to. I awoke confused because I was on the floor with my nurse next to me with my head turned sideways and a bunch of nurses all around. I was asked a bunch of questions and eventually, they were able to get me into a wheelchair.
The doctor questioned if I had a seizure. He ordered a CT because he was worried I hit my head. But my nurse said I didn’t because she went down with me when I went down and my head doesn’t hurt anywhere. My CT was fine but the doctor wants an MRI so I might end up doing that at some point tonight.
I’m very nauseated even with medicine. I wasn’t able to eat dinner but so far I’ve kept my meds down. Now I’m hoping to sleep some tonight. I’m ok as long as I don’t lift my head. Tomorrow’s another day.
