I have woken up a few hours after day 2’s shenanigans with wild dreams and a slightly raised temperature, not viral more like lots of things are going on in my body! And indeed they are. In my dream a mouse was running around my bed.
The consent form I signed had a lot of things about potential side effects and because so few humans have been on these drugs a lot of the information goes along the lines of “in mice hair changes have been observed from brown to white – we do not yet know if this will happen in humans” – so my little imaginary mouse and I have been very busy over the last few hours because I have woken up with almost no palpable lymphadenopathy – all my lumps and bumps have disappeared – and they were big – not giant but enough not for me to be able to wear strapless dresses or wear my hair up (first world problems).
I did not expect this to happen so quickly after only one dose and it didn’t happen quite so quickly when I had chemo. I have not been this well for over 2 years and I have only had 2 days of treatment. I am buzzing with a new sense of hope and steroids.
