So I have had 4 treatments so far and no problems with chemo, but I am with the after effects.  I have to switch to the everyday neupogen shot because Neulasta was giving me problems.  I have had low potassium so have had to do two potassium infusions plus I am on oral potassium pills at home.  My hemogloblin was low so I had to have a blood transfusion.  Other than those problems I am doing good.  My appetite is fairly good am sleeping good.  Constipation is finally regulating between Miralax and laxatives.  How is everyone else doing.

Those chemo side effects can be a real pain in the you-know-what, but I'm glad you are able to manage them, with help.  I am very fortunate that my last chemo treatment was just over two years ago but I remember some of the side effects like it was yesterday.  I hope and pray that your next chemo treatments go smoothly.

Hugs,

Kelly
