Here I am almost 10 days after chemo and my symptoms are still about the same as the day after (and I do believe the effects are cumulative—much worse for longer than after the first dose): stomach issues, lack of appetite/food and drink don’t taste good, bloody nose, some back spasms and muscle aches, fatigue, nausea, some tingling in my fingers, toes and lips, what feels like a chemical burn on my hands and now a problem with my left knee. I am SO excited that I only have one round of chemo left as I am a pretty grumpy patient at this point. I enjoy having work to distract me 😊
Finally, I want to apologize to those of you who have reached out trying to talk with me—I truly appreciate you thinking of me, I have just been HORRIBLE about making the time to get back with each of you. I will try to get better.
