Well, I have plucked up the courage to be as honest as I can. This is very personal but I need to document it as it is all part of the journey. I saw a Dr today ( I asked to see a female one) and explained to her that I had some lesions or ulcers on my naughty bits. It flared up on Friday. Over the weekend it has got very painful. She explained that I am immunocompromised and have a viral infection. It seems to be the chicken pox/shingles virus or a cold sore virus. I haven't been near anyone with a cold sore so am not sure how that would be.
I have got some tablets, I have to take 5 a day for 10 days. I have added this as it is common to get this with chemotherapy. When the immune system is very low infections are picked up easily.
I have been so embarrassed by it but know I need to add it on here as it is part of the journey.
I have had a very restful day today, feel asleep on the sofa. Roll on Wednesday, I want to get this result out of the way so I can pick myself up again. My nose seems to have stopped bleeding now. It wasn't very much anyway. I will be going with a list of questions on Wednesday which will include asking for a PICC line for the chemo as my poor little veins are not happy.
