Session 10, final thoughts

Sometimes you know you shouldn't do something, but you don't have an alternative.

Having decided on a tight schedule for our move to another apartment, i had to deal yesterday, while still with the slow flow of chemo on a catheter, with moving some cartons, putting some relatively heavy pieces of electronics in their respective cartons (i like to hoard the original packagings, i find it much easier to move things later on), and putting the other cartons back in place in the basement.

Exercise increases the blood flow and the body temperature, which in turn increases the flow from the pump attached to the portacath, and instead of a steady 2ml per hour, you start getting 3 or more.

Which of course led to some fatigue and a faint feeling of unease, not really a full-blown nausea, but the early telltale signs.

So i had to lie down for half an hour, and eat a little bit, and things went back to normal.

Now the pump is off, so by tomorrow i should feel pretty normal.

But be aware and follow the instructions, if you can.
