I was pretty debilitated afterwards. I was told to take Pepcid for my GERD and I was given IV hydration on 1/31 and felt much better. I was given hydration again on 2/2 and didn't feel well. Two days later I started breathing very hard. Today, 8 days later I am still having problem with my breathing. We did a chest X-ray and my blood and everything looks good. HAS ANYONE EXPERIENCED ANDY BREATHING PROBLEM WITH THIS TREATMENT. I am so upset that I am ready to give up on the treatments… read more
I’ll be starting my first round on 3/6. Getting nervous of the unknown. Am hopeful I’ll do ok. Best wishes Felicia.
I will be receiving my 5th round tomorrow and Friday . The first round was difficult with fatigue ,sluggishness and headache but no breathing issues. Since then only fatigue. My scan after the 3rd round showed improvement .Try to stick with it
Best of luck
Try using the breathing plastic inhaler they give out at the hospital. If you don't have it, ask for one. You can also take a deep breath to the count of 4, hold for a count of 7, and exhale for the count of eight. Do this 3-4 times one right after the other at least twice a day. Or at least lead up to the amounts as you are able. Also, I listen to the Green Noise on YouTube. There is also white and brown noise you can try. My favorite is Dr Weils CD for relaxation of mind and body. These, of course should be in addition to what the doctor(s) suggest to do. One thing, NEVER GIVE UP Everything. Do what you can tolerate. ❤️❤️🙏🏼🙏🏼😊😊🇺🇸🇺🇸
My second treatment I had severe physical pain and explosive headache. I went to ER for relief… I have since learned that in B C one can buy Tylenol with 8grams of codeine over the counter.. I spoke with oncologist and my 3rd treatment was reduced by 50%.. my next treatment of same drugs will be 60%…please talk to your oncologist and find out how to cope better…all the very best to you.
Praying for your recovery.
