Good news! I finished the first 6 chemo treatments last week; had this Friday off, and have a week's leave from work before round number 2. Hubby and I had a quick visit to Cape Cod this weekend...beautiful, but brrrr (at least it was above zero!)
So far, things have gone OK. Occasional diarrhea, which sips of Pepto bismol or doses of Imodium stop. I began using Metamucil twice a day, and the last 2 weeks have been better. My weight is holding, but I find dairy and chocolate (my weakness) start things up again. It is nice to be able to eat whatever else strikes my fancy.
Tomorrow I am having an access port inserted; I've had a local skin reaction on my left hand and wrist, and the veins on my right hand can't take it any more!
Fatigue is primary problem now; naps are a must!
Thanks to all of you for your support and answers to my questions and postings; I have found so much here that is helpful and inspiring. Regards to all, Judy
