One Saturday we went for a walk in the forest at Kincardine to see the autumn leaves. The next day my left eye was swollen. This is not unusual for me, it's happened before at this time of year and has been ascribed to an allergy to fungus. After a week of oral antihistamines and eye drops it wasn't getting any better (see previous post pic). Around the 10 day point I spoke to the Dr and was prescribed antibiotics, the next day my eye was beginning to weep and we thought it was best to speak to the cancer nurses. I sent them photos beforehand which they showed to the consultant. The consultant made the decision to pull me into hospital for IV antibiotics as they didn't want the infection moving back into my brain, understandable, which could have happened because I have "hee haw immune system".
After 3 extremely boring days in the hospital (although a slightly better week for food than the last time including teacakes!), I was freed with some tablets the size of bars of soap. I was also given an extra week off chemo and therefore was allowed off one of my treatment drugs for that week which means I can treat myself to a glass of wine or a gin!!!!!!!! Totally worth it x
Then they gave me another week off chemo because of the above and low white blood cell count. Fingers crossed it starts again soon otherwise I'll be getting chemo for xmas! I asked Santa for a new immune system :)
