I was sent home from the hospital with three different nausea meds. For someone who rarely pops a pill, this was quite overwhelming. Some were to be taken every 4 – 6 hours, others were to be taken at night vs morning, etc … it was too much for me to handle. Because I felt so good the day I came home from the hospital, I forgot to continue taking the nausea meds. It was just not on my radar, after all we were excited for the Steelers victory!
When I awoke the day after chemo, I felt SO SICK. Oh my gosh! Trying to determine was I just nervous or was this nausea … the big question of the day. It’s hard to put into words how bad you really feel. And to top it all off, we had to drive back into Hopkins for my Neulasta shot! I was so angry & complained to Oneida I should have just paid the D*&^ copay & be done with it. Unfortunately, I didn’t have an option … I had to endure the 25 miles back to Hopkins & getting to the clinic. I was not HAPPY … but I did survive it. I just wanted a day to be home & I did get one.
