With each chemo infusion, they give you a bag of “premeds” which is a combo of anti-nausea medication and steroids, which holds off side effects for 24-48 hours. The steroids also give you a lot of energy and make you eat everything in sight.
Anyhoo, I got my first infusion on Wednesday, and it’s finally hitting me. So far, it’s not so bad. Slight nausea. Heavy chest. Fatigue. Very foggy brain.
As it stands, it’s nothing compared to side effects I’ve felt in the past.
I just want it to work. And I’ll know on Wednesday if it is. The week between treatment and knowing if the treatment is working is the worst.
My brain is very foggy.
