I had received the same immunotherapy treatment more than thirty years ago and remember it as being something of a cakewalk. This time around it is not such a walk in the park.
Nausea, fatigue, dizzyness and anomic aphasia, the cognitive inability to come up with a once familiar word. And lots of localized pain in the lower region. Burns like hell, nothing I can do about it. At least I am losing weight, no appetite.
I had my first treatment last Wednesday, then went to the antique show and set up. I was tired the first day but totally lost it the second, people said I had turned very pale. I went home completely wacked, not sure how I even got home I felt so rotten.
The next night I stayed with friends on the coast so as not to kill myself driving. Had a very good show, but certainly paid the price for it.
Left for San Diego at 6:30 this morning to make my early treatment. Today I feel even worse than I did last week. Not sure how many more treatments I get, I think four in this initial run, but I do know it will be one interesting ride.
