Chemo # 17 was Tuesday followed by increasingly hard week of post chemo nausea

Last Tuesday I had my 17th chemo.  Now I am struggling through another week of severe nausea.  Despite a regime of four anti-nausea meds, I could not keep liquids down yesterday, so back to the hospital I went for IV fluids and more anti-emetics.  I even threw up in the infusion chair while getting more anti-nausea meds!   Still feeling yucky today but liquids are staying down and that's most important.  My feet, leg, and hands are exhibiting the side effects of Doxorubicin.  It is a hot blistering acidic feeling, different from neuropathy, very unpleasant, but it should diminish after treatment.  I tried a new product, Care By Design pain cream, a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD that has helped the burning feeling, another use for Cannabinoids!  [...]
