I’m kind of at a loss as to what to say today. Today is definitely better than yesterday but the overwhelming waves of nausea are still attacking whenever they feel like it and at times I'm concentrating so hard on not throwing up that I can’t do anything else. My meditation mantra is “I will not throw up. I will not throw up. I will not throw up.” for hours on end. Yesterday felt like an eternity but today its already noon – definitely an improvement.
At this point I'm still going hypo as both my Drs told me I can’t start my thyroid meds until Sunday morning so those symptoms are still horrible as well. Most notably my entire body is in pain and I don’t think I've ever felt so weak in my life. I may have to go hypo again for follow-up scans but I can handle it as long as I never have to do a treatment dose of RAI again at the same time. Last night I was having trouble breathing from a combo of swelling in my neck from the RAI and my depressed respiratory rates from being hypo – couple that with the pain and not being able to take respiratory depressing pain meds… it was miserable.
Positive notes: my salivary glands are less swollen and sore today and I get to eat real food again starting at 1pm!!!!! I have no idea what my first meal will be today, so far my craving has been a BK cheeseburger w/ ketchup only and fries with BBQ sauce. I don’t even normally like BK but hey, my tummy wanted it in between nausea waves so maybe that will be it?
