It has been almost 3 months since my Brachy Therapy surgeries for the Uveal Melanoma in my right eye.
On Saturday I had CT Scans done on my pancreas and my abdomen. When I got home and took my shoes off I saw my left foot had turned dark red, from the foot to halfway up my ankle. The Right leg was not as much affected.
The discoloring had lessoned considerably by the time of my next CT Scan, on my chest, on Tuesday. I told the technicians of the issue and when they saw my legs they said I had an allergic reaction, they gave me something in me, by IV, to help prevent a reaction and I had the 2nd scan.
I went home and went to bed, but after midnight I awoke with this terrible itch all over my body, and I spent the next few hours scratching as feverishly as one might do to a lottery scratcher ticket.
When I got up at 5am, in prep for yesterday’s doctor appointments, I took a war shower, after the shower I no longer felt the urge to scratch, but I went to my appointments with some sort of watery blisters all over my arms above the wrist and at the elbows, as well as on both heels.
When the docs saw this the consensus was, "Well it appears we will have to do an MRI or something else to check you next time, won't we?"
Well, duh, hee, hee!
They gave me medications to take for a couple of days and told me to stay home and relax a few days to see what happens. So far the meds are working and the issue is clearing up, though the blisters, including the big ones on my heels, have all popped and the skin peeled.
The good news about the tests is all positive. They found nothing cancerous, but there were a couple of tiny nodules in the chest that were nothing to worry about, and will check me again in several months. My eye surgeon found my right eye was doing fine except for a little build-up of pressure for which he gave me a new drop for a month, and gave me instructions for gradually reducing the other one. I will see him again in a month.
