The End of Week One

| 1 Comment
Well, the first week is over and it hasn't been as bad as I feared.
There is a rash around the injection site about 2 inches in diameter and yesterday, for the first time, that area hurt a bit, especially when I climbed the stairs.
My appetite is the same, I'm thirstier for sure and finding I'm getting cramps in my feet every now and again.  At the worst possible moments sometimes, like when I'm driving.  Ever try to NOT step on the gas when you get a foot cramp?  Its really, really hard not to speed. LOL.
One thing I have noticed though, is my temper is hair trigger.  That makes it really hard for my son. but he's been told that it isn't really me, its the meds.  He's getting lots of hugs though because of it.
I am finding myself a little winded and more easily tired.  Slept for 12 hours the other night and that is very unusual for me.  I'm a 6- to 6 1/2-hour a night person.
Other than that, things don't feel and look so bad. 
On to week 2!

Thanks for sharing your treatment. I am starting this Friday. I have been putting it off for a while as once I read how bad it was I was scared. I look forward to reading your posts, good luck.
