About book: TEN DAYS LATER You don’t get sick right away.
My problem is I’ve seen a lot of movies where people get cancer and it seems that they’re throwing up the second after they start chemo. That’s what I expected, anyway. I figured right after the nurse yanked the IV out of my arm, waves of nausea would start hitting me, and I’d be puking in the car on the way home. It’s not like that at all.
I get home and I feel fine. No nausea, dizziness, nothing. In fact, I take a brisk thirty-minute walk, which makes me feel refreshed. When I get back, Dr. Mehldau is on the phone.
“Hey, Robert. Thought I’d check in. How you feeling?”
“I feel pretty good. No nausea. This isn’t bad at all.”
Then one word that’s like a stop sign.
“Wait.”
“Really?”
“I hate to burst your bubble, but you will get sick. It usually takes between nine and eleven days for your white and red blood cell count to plummet. Then it hits you. That’s why we space the chemo treatments three weeks apart.
