Too all my friends,
Had my second chemo on Friday-my doc tells me the 2nd and 3rd should be easier than the first. (First I had bad joint pains). So far I feel ok, tired. And this time no diareah so far, but I am afraid I might go the other way-constiptated.I seem to be having some trouble there now. I hope not. I had such issues with that post surgery and it took a long time to get straighted out. Does anyone know if constipation becomes an issue on chemo can we take miralax? I am going to have to ask doc if continues.
I am still feeling encourage in that my doc told me my CA125 dropped from 300 post surgery to 20 after first chemo. My doc seemed quite pleased and said is a good sign.
I am stage 3 so I hope this is encouraging to others out there.
I find that I feel better when I drink a lot of fluids and also my protein drinks-I picked up a tip on these boards and now mix the protein powder with orange juice twice a day.
Peace, happiness and healing to all.
