It was harder than the other two. I basically breezed through the first 2 doses. This time I was slammed with nausea, dizzy, down all weekend (dose on Friday, July 8), finally able to tolerate some food on Monday.
I have painful, multiple little bumps (look like nasty zits!) at the base of my skull, mainly on the right. My onc says it's melanoma attaching to nerve endings. Hurts like the devil. Feels like getting hit by a soldering stick.
So, I've struggled with sleeping, as my right neck is an enormous lump of nodes (I'm prayerful that it's ipi working), I have these painful bumps on the back of my head, and a couple of new nodes on the left of my neck.
I'm taking Neurontin for the bumps, plus a low dose of Oxy for pain. Still having trouble sleeping…oh well.
Thanks for asking Nicki.
