Hello to all,
Many of you recognize my nick here on alnurses, I have been visiting for awhile.
I am in the midst of my chemo for appendcial cancer. I pretty much feel like i am dying for 10 our of the 14 day cycle, eat very little, drink very little energy. I use the salt water and bicarb swish and swallows for my mouth and through but that helps me very little with the lower GI mucositis (lovely, lovely side effect).
I have spent the past 4.5 months trying to remain a hospice nurse and not a hospice patient...now my employment may me in jeopardy.
Mostly I am looking for encouragement here. This is not a nice cancer and I am unbelieveably sad and depressed about my circumstances.
I know that I cannot seek medical advice here, and honestly that is no what I am seeking. Just some moral support, maybe a few words of wisdom. Thanks, my friends
