.....very slowly Im starting to feel better - stronger.
I had a wee bit of a set back, my left arm was still very swollen on Monday so I gave the PIC line team a ring at Christies to ask for some advice. I was told I needed an urgent scan on it to make sure I didnt have a clot. The lovely nurse told me she would organise everything. And she was as good as her word, a short while later Dr P called and said his SHO was waiting at the QE for me. So off I trotted and had my scan which was clear, thank goodness.
The next morning I had an appointment to see Dr P anyway to have my bloods checked and he had a look at my, by now very swollen, arm. After a quick chat with Andrea at Christies we all decided it was cellulitis - so now Im on mega anti biotics to try and clear it up before next Monday.
Im so very tired all the time, I fall asleep at the drop of a hat, sleeping about 14 hours a day. I guess its my bodys way of recovering. Appetite still isnt good and I still cant taste anything but Im managing to eat small meals. Im still shedding skin like mad, but Ive discovered one benefit of this, the skin on my face is now baby soft and a lot of the blemishes have disappeared. I guess its like having a chemical peel. I shall have to be very careful in the sun and use a very high factor sun cream.
Just 4 days till I go back again. Im finding it increasingly difficult to remain positive because I know whats in store for me now. Im trying to focus on this time next week when it will all be over - for a couple of months anyway.
