I’ve been off the Z for almost a full week now, due to the changing of my treatment plan and being so sick last weekend.
As much as I love the Z for SIGNIFICANT SHRINKAGE, I’m so happy for a break from the side effects! It’s funny though, as they seem to be cycling backward. My chicken skin has reduced quite a bit (yay!) but my bones feel so tender, giving a whole new meaning to funny bone not being funny – it’s a searing pain when I hit any part of my body on anything! And my hands/knuckles are totally tender and sore again. The hair loss is still happening, but at least I still have some, right?
I’m not as nauseous, I’m not [TMI] spending too much time in the bathroom, and my brain is almost working full time again!
I’m starting back on the Z on Monday for a week or so – half the dose, just to keep it in my system until we start Ipi on the 24th. The side effects of Ipi are supposed to be similar, but don’t generally kick in until the second + dose. Yay!
That’s all for now! Take care of you and yours, eh?
