Side effects – 9 August

Well what a day and it didn’t start well!

I awoke to a splitting headache, fatigue and tiredness, aching jaw and muscles. It was so bad I couldn’t get out of bed and infact I never got up until 1 pm in the afternoon and I was still feeling pretty rough.

And so I can only put this down to side effects from the Carboplatin Chemotherapy that I had on the 23rd of July. I was a little surprised to be getting side effects like this so long after treatment.

And even now as I write two days later I still don’t feel 100% and am still taking paracetamol and brufen to keep things under control.

And so now I wonder what this means for future treatments and I am due the next one in 2 days ?

The other thing about the 9th was that was the day we were heading to Southwold in Suffolk for a week’s break and so I was gutted to be feeling so under the weather.

Eventually I pulled myself together and felt well enough for the drive and so we headed off to Southwold.

And it must be true what they say about ‘sea air’ as we went for a walk along the beach and I felt a lot better. That sea air was a real tonic.

So we are making the most of our time on the coast although I will need to go to London twice, once for my Outpatients Appointment and then for treatment.

So watch this space 😉

It was overcast when we arrived.
Watching Teddy having fun on the beach always makes me smile
