    blood infusing

      Don't know what your question is. But if you are anemic during treatment, it is very common to get blood transfusions. I had three during treatments. They did mine through my port. They gave me Tylenol before and after transfusions. It took about four hours to do the transfusions and they started mine after midnight in the hospital. I think because the nurses are not as busy during this time.
      My husband and kids give blood often. I didn't really realize that many cancer patients need blood to get their numbers up and save their lives. My husband has donated TEN gallons through the years. I am very proud that he does it. Three cheers for all those who donate!

      If you need it use it....I used a nasal cannula to sleep when I had sepsis pneumonia and it helped a lot.

      I remember being in the hospital and they gave me oxygen so I could breath better. I had been very sick from the chemo. And if they feel you need it, it's for a good reason
