Taxol: more bone pain and nosebleeds

The last couple of days I’ve been exhausted because the bone pain has been intense during the evening hours and into the night. Last night, again, I couldn’t sleep from the pain. I took another Lorazepam and ibuprofen to total two and four, and then I read for a while with my little night light.

Well, of course, I was reading my new Mac Bible, so I wanted to try a few things on the computer and ended up going to play on my Mac. Finally, I got sleepy enough that I thought I could fall asleep. I sure did and didn’t wake until nearly nine. When I got up, I felt like I had a hangover.

My nose is driving me crazy. I don’t know if this is from my platelets being low, but the lining of my nose is just peeling off and bleeding. I’ve never had a nosebleed in my life, and now it’s like it’s just sloughing off. It feels dry and uncomfortable, but when I touch it or blow it, I get blood. I notice I’ve had a few bruises from my Neupogen® injections lately, so maybe it’s all from the low platelets. My temperature has been no higher than 99.8. That’s great.

Today I had the blues for about ten minutes. It’s just a weird phenomenon. I do not feel depressed and feel very excited that I’m getting to the end of the chemo treatment, but suddenly I was nearly sobbing. I can’t even say I had a thought or particular feeling that caused it. It’s just a sudden urge to feel blue. Then, it was over as fast as it started.

Felt like dancing but my legs have just been too shaky.
