I’m starting to feel crappy again. Not sure if it’s from starting the chemo or weaning off steroids or both at the same time, but I feel super tired and have aching pain. I received my last dose of cytarabine last night, so I’m pretty sure I’m done with my first B part of the hyper CVAD protocol. Next they start with part A, not sure when exactly.
On the bright side, my blood sugar levels have been returning to normal as I wean off steroids. I still have to take long-acting insulin twice a day, but unless my sugars are high I don’t need any short-acting insulin at meals. My appetite has also dropped off a cliff. By this time of day a week ago I would have eaten maybe 4x the calories I’ve eaten so far today. I have a little bit more leeway with sugary foods now that my sugars are normalizing, and now I have no interest in them.
It’s gonna be a long week. But I’m ready for it.
