I had my first carbo/taxol treatment yesterday. I’m feeling good this morning.

Leading up to it, I fasted for 65 hrs, continued fasting through treatment, and then ate a bit, easily digested foods, about 5 hrs after. I felt good doing the fast except at one point I dehydrated myself with an epson salt bath and didn’t realize until I started feeling light headed. Oops.

During treatment I drank a lot of water and used iced packs on my hands and feet.

I’m taking CBD oil but have my marijuana handy should I start getting nauseous. I just have to figure out how to use a vape pen.

Today I will take a epson salt bath and do some rebounding to prevent any edema.

I’m having my second acupuncture session tomorrow.The first was last week before chemo.
