Really nervous this morning. I’m having my first session of chemo over 3 days, as they need to ensure I’m not allergic to any of the drugs, so they give one today and tomorrow and then Wednesday the 2 actual chemo drugs.
Today is Pertuzumab day – the expensive one! The first attempt at getting the cannula in my vein didn’t work, so they wrapped a heat pad around my arm and then hey presto a more prominent vein appeared! Saline first to flush the vein through. They then injected me with Piriton (so if I do have an allergic reaction, it shouldn’t be as bad). It made me really sleepy almost straight away and by the time they put the Pertuzumab in I was dozing off. Had to stay most of the day to make sure I didn’t react but all went well. Just felt a bit woozy.
