VTmom - you are amazing! How on earth did you sit or lie still for so long? Did they at least let you watch tv? You should have been allowed to access nc.com! My goodness, I had no idea chemo took so long.

Even drying our curls doesn't take that long (stupid joke I know but hoped it would give you a grin).

You rock, VTmom!

For one thing, I'll be in the infusion lab from now on instead of a regular hospital room like I was yesterday (my treatment was scheduled too late last week to reserve a chair in the lab so I had to go to "chemo overflow" on a surgical floor, so everything took a little longer - pharmacy filling script for my drugs, nurses had more patients to care for, etc.). Also, one of my drugs was a 90 min. drip yesterday, but that will decrease gradually over the next 2 treatments.

It was a really long day...left home at 7:00, returned at 5:30, but am so thankful that I now have 1 down and only 5 to go!

Agree with cp - had no idea it would take so long, how tedious for you, though I'd be quite happy sitting with my computer or a book.
How long between treatments?
3b in South Australia.
3 weeks between treatments as long as everything goes well...no white blood cell issues, infections, etc. This treatment was longer than the remaining ones will be (hopefully). They should only be about 3 1/2 to 4 hrs.
