Today I had a 30 minute infusion of Zometa. Before I began, I had some blood drawn and sent up to the lab so my creatinine could be checked. It was .8 mg/dL, which is ok for me. It’s always .7 or .8. I don’t know what it was like years ago, but it would be interesting to find out.
The nurses always tell me to drink lots of water on the infusion days. I always do! Before they start, I’ve had a liter. By the end of the day, I’ll have had at least a few more liters of water.
They had Winnie the Pooh bandaids in the chemo room today. My injection site was bleeding too much for one though, so I had it wrapped up. I got my bandaid to go.
I have to go have my INR checked now!
