This fourth round has not been so bad, ups and downs, but doable.
As usual I get worse after my Neaulasta shot the day after chemo. The first 35 hours it’s just nausea, but after the shot the headaches, joint pains, indigestion kick in.
This time I have taken less pills. I have a little nausea, but I feel that it is better for me to feel slightly sick, than the depression that the meds cause. I have better focus on the future. I am in the 4 C’s zone: calm – clear – centered – confident
On February 11 I will start my 12 weeks with Taxol.
Bleeding, blistering, burning, coldness, discoloration of the skin, feeling of pressure, hives, infection, inflammation, itching, lumps, numbness, pain, rash, redness, scarring, soreness, stinging, swelling, tenderness, tingling, ulceration, or warmth at the injection site, cracked lips, diarrhea, difficulty with swallowing, hair loss,nausea or vomiting, numbness, burning, or tingling in the hands or feet, pain in the joints or muscles, especially in the arms or legs, thinning of the hair + weightgain.
These are the common side effects. The rare and more serious side effects I avoid thinking about.
I have 18 days until the Taxol starts. I am going to enjoy them fully ❤️
