Cycle 2 Week 1 Day 2 Carfilzomib and Dex - November 28 2012

I had a slight headache during the night which I attributed to the intravenous aredia (bone building medication) that I received yesterday. I took 500 mg of Tylenol twice during the night and seemed better by the time I arrived at the Infusion Area for my 7:30 AM appointment.

My IV started yesterday and heparin-locked overnight was still working - YEA! I received my carfilzomib (dosage 27 metered-squared).
 I wore a mask because some of the staff have colds right now.
I was on my way back home in Mackay within an hour. I felt fine during the 2 1/2 hour drive.

Stopped in to visit my father for a few minutes and did his dishes - he is fine.

Ron brought stinky-skunk-smelling Kemmer over to my house. He put some of the Nature's Made Skunk Off on her that I bought in Twin Falls. I'll have to work on her tomorrow when I have more energy.

I had some lunch, became one-with-my-sofa and slept for several hours. Woke with a pretty good headache, creepy legs, and aches which I, again, attributed to the aredia I received yesterday. I finally took a Claritin - WHICH I SHOULD HAVE TAKE yesterday when I got the aredia. My history with zometa and aredia has ALWAYS resulted in headache and aches and Claritin has always helped - what was I thinking?

I slept again and woke around 6 PM without the headache and feeling pretty well. At bedtime, I remembered to take my Revlimid 10 mg (Day 2 or 21) and gave myself my Fragmin injection 15,000 units.

  1. Judy...have you tried tomato juice on Kemmer. That's what I always used on my dog when he got sprayed by a skunk and it worked like a charm. - Marsha
