Thanks Spongebob for your great advice and pep talk. I wrote down all my "greivances" and also all my side effects down and presented it to my onc dr. He spent an hour going through each thing with me. We agreed to drop my dosage down to 80% letting the plastic surgeon dictate on Wed if we continue chemo at this time. My healing from my surgery has stopped and we are not sure if chemo is the whole culprit. But I think the plastic surgeon will tell me to continue on.
So far so good. The ativan works wonders for the nerves. And I feel as though my concerns were properly addressed. And maybe now I feel like I have a little more control. There is that control thing again!!!!
One treatment down, 4 more to go this week, then off for the next three. Hoping side effects are lessened with the lower dosage. I will always hope.
Darn... the cat just got the christmas tree. Better go look for lost ornaments.
