Cycle 3 Day 1

In by 9:00am, out at 3:30pm and the treatment went smoothy. Back at home it will be a quiet night and I’m preparing for some serious weight gain, followed by a serious weight drop, trips to the bathroom every 2-3 hours for several days, and some extra energy and reduced sleep thanks to the Dexamethasone .

This will be the 2nd last visit to St. Boniface Hospital for some time. After the Cycle 3 Day 8 treatment on Tuesday May 19th, the Health Sciences Centre takes over for the Bone Marrow (Stem Cell) Transplant(BMT). This will include several pre-BMT tests, the collection of the stem cells, the hospitalization for additional chemotherapy (the “countdown”), stem cell infusion (Day 0), and then recovery.
