Just got back from the port draw and discovered that tomorrow's drip is only 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The chemo nurse looked up on my chart which "T" I'm getting. The first chemo I had was Taxol - which is a 4 hour drip. This time I'm getting Taxatere instead which drips in half the time!
The nurse told me it doesn't cause nausea but I should bring frozen peas to put on my finger nails and toe nails. It can cause darkened nails and mouth sores. So I got bags of frozen corn and a box of frozen organic strawberries to suck on during my drip.
No need for tons of visitors! I can easily read through this one!
