So yesterday I started two new drugs, vincristine and procarbazine. I feel like I now have a realer chemo experience. Yesterday evening I felt terrible and threw up. Today started off great, but about 4 hours after taking the procarbazine, the nausea started again and I’ve thrown up twice since. I don’t share this to be gross or overly personal, but so you can pray more specifically. Please also pray for my loving wife, she finds it very stressful to see me being sick. Especially this way.
The vincristine drug was given by IV and the procarbazine is oral capsules. The IV I don’t get again for several weeks, but the pills are every day for the next two weeks.
But, praise the Lord, I’m this far in and now really is the first bad side effects. I’m confident with continued prayer, this too will be doable.
