My pain from the hand-foot syndrome increased a lot over the weekend and so has the discomfort in my mouth and throat. After spending most of Saturday and Sunday on the sofa and taking close to the maximum daily dose of Vicodin, my plan is to try to get in to see the onc tomorrow if possible. Plus I will call the naturopath. Someone ought to take a throat culture and treat whatever is going on in my mouth, and I'm hoping to get moved onto different pain meds. My left hand is also puffy from lymphedema and the hand-foot thing and I am reluctant to bandage for fear of making the H-F syndrome worse. It's a vicious circle.
Of course my fear is that if I can't manage the side effects after only two rounds of Doxil, how will I handle four more treatments? Maybe I can persuade Dr G to reduce the dose or maybe he has other ideas.
