2nd Chemo Treatment

Not such a good start as the first time – that went smooth as silk.

Checked in, nice private room with a patio.

So far, sitting in a chair for six and a half hours; no food, attention, water, etc.               We’ll see how it goes from here. 6 ½ and counting…  Ended up being 8 ½ hours.

Normal room this time. Nothing special, except that they gave me anti-nausea tablets that are causing constipation.

Released on Friday evening. Nice dinner at home. Up all night with bowel movements and inadvertantly became extremely dehydrated.

Next morning – back to hospital.

Pain, discomfort, distended abdomen and gut due to????

X-rays, CT Scan – no blockage, per sei – just full of shit.  The large intestine, backing up into the small and possibly my stomach. The original thought was surgery – now it’s to try to blow out the bowels with a massive laxative dose to restore function.

Didn’t work.

Sitting in the Hospital bed, writing this – I don’t think I like the options now.
