First really tough day today due to the incredibly painful Mucositis starting. I though post chemo mouth was bad but it has nothing on this! Trying to keep drinking and the doctors have lots of mouth washes/sprays etc this am.
I'm starting a small dose of a chemo drug called methotrexate today, it's to help prevent graft vs host disease so a good thing but apparently makes the mouth even worse!
Decision of the day, accept that the next week is going to be pretty horrendous, take whatever pain killers I can (doc mentioned morphine, hooray!) and just deal with it as a yucky part of this bit of recovery. And that's what it is, it's still recovery so we will manage it how we have everything else (just with a lot less talking!)
Blood Counts are now flat but I like that as it now means we have something to start watching for next week/the week after.
