I can share that after my first (Cisplatin+Alimta) treatment I wanted nothing to even taste much less eat … I lost 20 lbs living on popsicles and Boost for the first three weeks of Cisplatin
… following today’s (Carboplatin+Alimta) I treated Megan to lunch at Panera Bread. We both inhaled bread bowls, hers potato soup mine tomato soup +++++ I also went for their ‘big kids’ grilled cheese sandwich. …. The eating frenzy was not over without a coffee ice cream cone for desert at Rakestraw’s
With two of three right lung tumors shrinking and the other one arrested, I salute you Cisplatin … you are the baddest-ass butt-kicking descendant of Mustard Gas around.
Today I sing of your cousin Carboplatin!!! I need to restore my body … thank you for the appetite.
More to follow but for now it’s all delicious!!!
