Scott was still very sickly yesterday and much to my dismay the clinic wouldnt refill his nausea medicines without seeing him first. I was hoping to keep plying him with some good drugs and bury my head in the sand but they werent having it.
So we went in to the "off-treatment" clinic, which I didnt like very much, nothing like the same old familiar cancer clinic I spose, and he got checked over by Dr Tebbi - which Scott calls his 'feel-up'. The doctor couldnt see anything obviously worrying, nothing distended, no signs of dehydration, nothing like that. Blood was drawn and we were sent home with lots of lovely little sample pots and instructions to keep Scott on a ginger-ale diet for a day.
The blood results came back this morning and thankfully everything looked okay. His hemoglobin and platelets are good and his anc is 5000. He is still oozing bodily fluids left, right and centre though, so goodness knows what is going on. A simple bug perhaps, but with Scott I have my doubts. He doesnt have simple bugs.
David is also quite ill with symptoms similar to Scott but I dont think its the same problem.
Doctor Tebbi is also going to send Scott to another specialist in the coming weeks (once he is feeling a wee bit better) regarding his chronic diarrhea, he suspects it could be IBS brought on by the chemotherapy. Shit! ( <- please pardon my pun.)
