They said with Chemo, if you can make it through your third day, the rest of the treatments should be a breeze....so here I am and I am doing well! The meds they are giving me for nausea are working perfectly, even though I am not thrilled with my "MENU" of medications...I will do what I have to do, to get through this.
The only side effect that I am experiencing is the loss of vision, or should I say the blurred vision....it's driving me nuts and for someone who thought she knew what fatigue was, I can now say I know fatigue....even though my mind is alert, my body wants to sleep and I have to keep my eyes closed for longer periods of time.... small price to pay in becoming a Breast Cancer Survivor!
I made a mistake in my earlier calculation on when I should have my last chemo treatment.....it should be on January 2, 2007. If I can stay healthy and on my chemo schedule, I should be back to my old self come February. My treatments are every two weeks for 16 weeks and only the firsts 4 treatments are the supposed to be the roughest.
Thanks for reading and thanks for caring and thanks for all the prayers sent up in my name! Everything is going very well and I am truly blessed!
