Guess what this post is about?
It’s about gas.
Everybody does it, so why can’t we talk about it?
I posted in the beginning about chemo brain, how I didn’t know if it was a thing, but if it wasn’t it should be. (And for the record, it totally is a thing that people going through chemo understand, and those close to them understand as well.) Well, the same goes for chemo farts. I don’t know if they’re a thing, but if they’re not they should be.
And they’re terrible!!!!!
This cycle they were the absolute worst though. I think I nearly killed Brad a few times. It’s not intentional, it just happens.
Something to understand…when you’re dealing with the lower digestive issues I’ve been dealing with, you have to be super careful when passing gas because there’s always the chance that it’s not gas.
Some of Brad’s wisest words were, and still are, “If you have the squirts, don’t fart.” Maybe not something someone should be memorialized for, but it’s very good advice nonetheless.
But yeah, chemo farts.
It’s a thing. A terrible, terrible thing.
And there’s not a thing you can do about it either!
