This is the crazy thing I wear on my arm out of chemo. Just as I’m receiving my last infusion of Carboplatin, Nurse Kristy puts this little box on my arm and it injects the needle into my arm. But it doesn’t dispense until 27 hours after it’s been injected. Around 5 pm today it started beeping, and then beeped consistently for 45 minutes while it depleted. After it finishes, the lights turn to red and I can peel it off. Right about the same time, the icky chemo flu sets in.
Not long ago, people receiving chemo would have to go back into the hospital to get a shot of nuelasta, and then turn around and go home. Big improvements in only a handful of months, really.
And, that was my last one. And this is my last bout with the ickys. Here’s hoping its gentle to me.
