Så blev jeg godt nok skaldet!

Igår tog jeg et bad efter min sædvanelige træning. Pludselig stod jeg med en kæmpe tot hår mellem fingrene. Jeg var ved at blive skaldet. Jeg havde haft en underlig fornemmelse i hovedbunden i et par dage. Det var som om hårene var ømme. Og så faldt håret pludseligt af. Det er mærkeligt. Det bekymrer…

Hairless, bald, clean-cut…

Yesterday I took a shower after my usual workout. Suddenly I had a lot of hair between my fingers. I was getting bald. I have had a weird feeling in my skalp for a few days. It was like my hair was hurting a bit. And then suddenly it fell off. It is funny. It…

#Hospitaloutfit for harvesting blood stem cells

The day that I was supposed to have my stem cells harvested I really wanted to be comfortable. I needed the nurses to have easy access to my venous catheter, but I also needed something to take over my shoulders if I got cold. And then I needed to walk for a while to get…

Høsten af blodstamceller

Den 19. februar var det meningen at jeg skulle have mine blodstamceller høstet. Dette skridt i behandlingen kommer efter den første runde kemo. Den 19. var der dog ikke helt nok stamceller. Der var ingen grund til bekymring, det var en helt normal del af behandlingen, at de ikke ved præcist, hvilken dag de kan…

Harvesting blood stem cells

On February 19 I was supposed to have my blood stem cells harvested. This is the step of the treatment that comes after the first round of chemo. However, on the 19th there weren’t enough stem cells ready. It was nothing to worry about – it is just a normal part of the process. In…

Brombærbomber

Jeg elsker at bage og lave desserter. Det er nærmest meditativt for mig. Jeg kan bande og svovle, mens jeg arbejder på at få den helt rigtige chokoladekant på plads, men jeg nyder det. Inden alt det her hospitalshalløj gik i gang, have Mathias og jeg inviteret nogle rigtig gode venner på besøg. Min veninde…

Venekateteret og den første kemo

Den 30. januar fik jeg, som nævnt i et anden blogindlæg, en æggestok fjernet. I forbindelse med operationen spurgte lægen om han ikke bare skulle indsætte et venekateter, mens jeg alligevel var i fuld narkose. Ellers skulle jeg have det lagt ind med lokalbedøvelse ugen efter. Jeg sagde ja tak, for de var alligevel rart…

Venous catheter and the first chemo

On January 30 I had, as mentioned in another blog post, an ovary removed. Before the operation the doctor asked me if he should make an extra operation and put in the venous catheter, while I was in general anaesthesia. Otherwise I would need another operation the next week, and the doctors would insert the…

Hospital outfits!

Hospital outfits. What a silly category! But it is not without significance. It is important not to feel too sick, yet still being comfortable. Therefore I need clothes that are fashionable, but comfy and also clothes that don’t interfere with the venous catheter. Todays comfortable outfit is: Amazing blue and golden pants from Stine Goya…
