For the last two days, I’ve felt better. My surgical pain, though decidedly still with me, has been tolerable. I’ve not taken any oxycodone for pain in quite a few days, but I’ve increased my gabapentin by about a third in recent days; I suspect that may have helped.
My oncologist told me she was going to have a surgeon contact me about installing a port in my chest to simplify the process of chemotherapy and drawing blood. But that hasn’t happened yet, so I’ll call her today to find out what gives. My first chemo treatment is scheduled for next Monday, January 7; I doubt I can have a port done this week, so it may be a while.
My first “real” treatment will be Thursday afternoon, when I get my first radiation treatment. I hope to learn then the schedule for treatments (and I hope they’re in the morning from that point forward).
