Update on second chemo session.
Had some trouble accessing the port again - took three needles and the attention of an "expert" nurse - but it is still working.
Had in-hospital infusions of Oxaliplatin and Irinotecan yesterday. Most noticable side effects were tingling fingers and sensitivity to cold bot in fingers and mouth - as well as a "numb tongue". These are known side effects of Oxaliplatin, and have settled down somewhat today, although still there.
I was sent home with a portable pump infusing 4800mg of Fluorouracil over the next 46 hours.
Currently at home, feeling tired - did not get a great night's sleep. Also, while not nauseous, my appetite is down - but I managed some breakfast today.
Will report again after I have the portable pump disconnected tomorrow afternoon.
