So it is 1 month since I received by stem cells and just less than 2 weeks since I have been home.
Well the rash that started on the flight home has caused me great distress. I arms are a mess and I can't stop scratching. I sent pics to Dr F who recommended that I get a script of cortisone. My Neuro, Dr Ganie gave a script but also got a Dermatologist to contact me..... Trip to the Dermatologist and a biopsy taken, meds and lots of creams. I have tried every cream that has been recommended....even tried cream that it put on cows udders!! Dr F says it is not common for such a reaction but that it should ease as my blood work improves.
For my first bloods, the Lab sent a nurse to the house to take the samples so that I did not have to risk going to the hospital. I sent the results to Dr F via WhatsApp and his response was that they are in line with what is expected and I need to have another test in 2 weeks time.
Spending a lot of time lying on the couch catching up on TV programmes. Fergus takes me for a drive every now and then so that I do not get cabin fever.
Visitors to a minimum and all have to clean hands and wear a mask.
My stomach is still not 100%. Following a neutropenic diet and drinking lots of water.
