UGH!!! Taxotere the drug of the past two rounds and of the next two rounds is making me feel like I am trapped in the body of my grandmother.
This week I have experienced a low grade fever on Thursday. And crazy cramps in my knees and hips. These cramps last about 3 to 4 seconds and come on randomly. Some are only annoying; others are absolutely painful. On Thursday and Friday at work it was like I had Tourrette's Syndrome because every time I had a pain I yelped. Friday and Saturday nights were awlful. I could not get comfortable. I am allowed one 650 mg pill of tylenol every eight hours. Saturday night I broke down and took something else just so I could sleep away the pain. My fingers don't function like they should. I can not even open my pill bottles. I called the doc on Friday about the fever and the cramps and believe it or not that is perfectly normally.
On the funny side, I really am walking like an eighty year old. I feel like my grandpa trying to get out of my car, walking to the potty and trying to get up out of the chair. I guess it is just practice for me when I get that age.
When talking to my aunt she was so proud of me for comparing my body to an eighty year old instead of sixty! I wonder old she is....
