After behaving itself for 3 weeks my blood pressure decided it wanted a piece of the action and promptly shot up. Not dramatically - but enough to warrant me being prescribed anti hypertensives. So thats yet another pill to take every day. Its not uncommon for this to happen on Sutent and you have your BP monitored very regularly.
My other side effects have stepped up a gear too - especially the sore mouth/tongue and nausea. I find it quite difficult to eat anything other than very soft sloppy 'baby' food.
But on the whole these side effects are still tolerable and nothing compared to the severity of the ones I suffered on IL2.
In fact, Ive even discovered a new one (trust me!) - lime green wee ! Theres nothing wrong with it, its just lime green in colour!
Makes a change from bright green poo I guess !
Aside from all these fascinating bodily functions my lumps are continuing to shrink - yes they definitely are, its not just wishful thinking, I get Martin to run his hand over them every day ! So even when Im feeling really grotty this is what Im focussing on.
Actually what Im really focussing on right now is sorting out my bikinis ready for Wednesday - and writing list after list of instructions for the kids ! Im not really worried about leaving them (well maybe a little bit), Im filling up the fridge and freezer for them so I know they wont starve and Ive pointed out the white box in the corner of the kitchen which washes clothes.
They will be fine. I just hope the cats survive the experience !
