Day 15 – 3rd round of chemo

Mouth sores continued to be the thing to manage today. She is taking an anti-fungal chewable and a gel that is applied directly on the sores. The gel does provide temporary pain relief and mildly numbs the area. So we are applying the gel 10 mins before a meal. She is eating a little less but its not bad. She has dropped 11 lbs in the last 15 days, but at this stage the doctors are not worried about weight loss.

This morning they gave her a unit of platelets. She was drowsy almost the entire day because of the benadryl & tylenol that were given to control reactions from platelets. Around 8 pm they gave her the 3rd dose of chemo. She was particularly tired today; perhaps each week is piling on the previous ones.

I found this on lls.org, it nicely summarizes at a high level what Rachana’s treatment might look like. Today was the start of week 3 of induction phase.

  2. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
