Just by way of update!
My stomach is still a total wreck. I emailed with my doc who told me this concerns him and is NOT normal. He said to take 2 Imodium up to 4 times a day and if that doesn’t fix it, he wants me to schedule an appointment. Well, the Imodium stopped the diarrhea, so that is SUPER. Sadly I am still uncomfortable, crampy, and bloated, but still – huge improvement!
In other news – the hair loss has begun! Not too bad yet, just shedding way more than normal. As mentioned previously, I have a crazy amount of hair, so if it thins uniformly, it won’t be terribly noticeable. If it starts falling out in clumps, though, it’s head shaving time.
Also I don’t have dry mouth (yet) but my tongue and the roof of my mouth feel like sandpaper. Such a weird and unpleasant sensation.
And finally – Merry Christmas! In spite of the stomach situation, I’ve been having a very nice day with my family and thinking a lot about how lucky I am and how wonderful my friends are. Hope you’re all having a beautiful day, whether it’s Christmas to you or not. ❤
