Have you maybe considered a DVD player that has a screen big enough you can both watch a movie on? They are for sale for less than $100. I'm getting my dad that while he's in the rehab hospital. You can order some classics from Amazon.com and each movie will be a memory for the progress you are making! I started praying for you yesterday sweetie.
Im sorry you have to go through that. I hope you recover fully! I recommend a magazine or 2 or 3 :) It is a long boring process. I had to take my aunt several times and it can be quite boring. She did not get sick right off. It took a day or so for her to really feel the effects. Some dont get sick at all. Good luck!
.hopefully you won't get sick some do and some don't. my sister went through chemo she was sick in the beginning.to occupying your mind bring your smart phone so you can go on ask. I'll keep you in my prayers
When I took chemotherapy, our cancer center had televisions where you could bring your own movies to watch. I spent most of my time reading, doing my hobbies, and watching Tv. I'm so sorry you have to go through this. My chemotherapy failed, and now I'm just waiting for the end. My family wants me in hospice care, but I want to stay at home. I hope I have the strength to win in this decision. Take care, I wish you God speed on your recovery. ;)
Definitely something funny.. surround yourself with things that make you happy.. watch comedy movies daily Allow laughter to enter your world more than ever.. as for nausea.. your first treatments may be light so I'm hope its effect on you will be..
Download a good audiobook onto your phone, mp3 or any device , that way should you get drowsy or feel a bit sick you can close your eyes and transport yourself out of there. Also get some sugared Ginger slices, nibble on those to help any nausea . Hang in there C, we're all sending positive thoughts! :-)
Get an iPhone and play Words with Friends or Scrabble on your phone. I thought everything was clear. I thought you were doing okay. Is this a precaution. I think you can ask for sedation if you are very nervous. I wish I was there to make you soup. Please let me know how you are.
I use to work at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston (altho, things have advanced since then). It depends on the choice of drug, dosage and personal tolerance. Where are you being treated? I believe Glaxo Smith Kline has a new breast cancer med (and also a new skin cancer med) that is revolutionary (totally different approach). Your first day may be too overwhelming to do any reading, or such. I wish you the best. I know you will do fine.
