No, you didn't miss a post - I didn't write anything about "day three".
FL's chemo treatment continues, and we are into an established routine now. He was absolutely wiped out after his Monday treatment and slept all day and all night on Tuesday. He also had his Zometa drip and a swine flu jab, so I am not surprised he felt rough! Luckily, his cough has gone without the need for a second course of antibiotics.
In terms of side-effects, he is now certain that the Velcade is making his peripheral neuropathy worse. He can't feel his feet at all. He doesn't think it is a big problem, but I have noticed he is walking clumsily. It is most noticeable if he gets up at night and slips his bare feet into his shoes - his toes can't grip them and he flip-flops his way across the tiles. I have bought him some warm slippers for Christmas (and the crazy thermal long johns!) as his feet even sound cold!
He is managing to avoid laxatives, by careful management of his diet. The whole family is benefitting from delights such as "pork chops with leeks and prunes" and my experiments with the "Veganomicon" cookbook! But he is on his own for the porridge and endless vats of vegetable soup. I am sure the Dexies increase his appetite!
The only other issue is the cycle of day-time sleeping / night-time insomnia. But he is enjoying having uninterrupted time to read. "The Bookseller of Kabul" and "The Sewing Circles of Herat" are on this week's menu.
