Ok, so my first week of chemo didn't go so well. Wednesday was fine no problems, Thursday I was tired and weak had no appetite and slept a lot, by Friday afternoon I had terrible leg pain and could barely walk. The pain in the right leg ended but it was too much to stand in my left leg, I finally gave in to it and by 4am I called and ambulance. No blood clots, or injury that showed, seemed to be just a reaction from the chemo, what a reaction!!!! Had 2 shots of morphine which didn't even dull the pain and after almost 12 hours in the ER I came home after a double shot of morphine and a shot of muscles relaxer. Still today I can barely stand upright and put weight on it with out it feeling like my leg is on fire, when I sit it feels like a constant charlie horse. And tomorrow is chemo day again...can hardly wait. lol
