I have had no apparent side effects from yesterday's taxol infusion. Right now I am lying on my right side, distributing today's chemotherapy to the right side of my abdomen. 45 minutes ago, 1 liter of warmed (body temperature) saline containing cis-platin was instilled into my abdomen through the IP (intra-peritoneal) port. Now I am turning every 15 minutes, like a pig on a spit, to help distribute the fluid throughout my abdomen.
Luckily, I have had no pain or nausea. We'll see how I do after I get off "the rotisserie".
Alarm just went off--turn again, only 1:15 more....
Home tomorrow, I hope.
