Taxol, fifth round

The day before my chemo I went to see Ljana, my reflexologist at Oslo Massasje AS. Not only is she super good at what she is doing, but also really kind and warm. This time I got acupunture as well. To ease the pain and side effects from chemo, to stay calm and to sleep better. Loved the treatment and slept like a baby.

   
 
Jarle had the day off from work so he came with me to the hospital. Met many of the boob sisters this time. This makes getting the chemo so much better. There is always a lot of waiting at the hospital, but when you can enjoy good company the time just flies. I don’t remember all of their names, but certainly remember Wenche and Vibeke ๐Ÿ˜€

 
 I was lucky to get the same chemo nurse as last time, she is really nice and funny. I had a small the room this time, and Jarle and I had the room to ourselves most of the time. Only at the end of my chemo a man took the other chair. 

The chemo was ok, I just got very tired at the end. The pills I take before treatment also makes you really tired.

   

 
It is now 5 days since chemo. I am having more pain in my knees, headaches, edema. 

The chemobrain is getting worse; I forget names, words, things that just happened. I find it hard to cencentrate.

But this Monday morning I got the best of it. Fatigue, my ass! Went to the gym and nailed it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ช cancer schmancer – here is my answer:
