I am so happy and thankful that I did not get a headache after my treatment today. Thank you Lord!!! I feel pretty good, but, am sure the fatigue will get worse, but, that's ok, i can handle just about anything except a headache like the one I had after my first treatment.

We all react differently -- glad to hear this time went better.

You will soon catch on if you seem to have a pattern, and that will help you plan your days between infusions.  I knew what days I would feel pretty good vs which days I probably would be content to just stay put.  Yes, it can change as the weeks go by.

What are you on?

How many and how often?

 

[If I don't get back to seeing this ASAP, it is because I will be out of town for two weeks and unsure of my ability to access the internet where I will be.]

I am on Adrimycin and cytoxin every 2 weeks. I have had 2 and have to have 2 more, then have 12 taxol weekly. They slowed the cytoxin down a little because the nurse said that can cause headaches, that helped. I sweat really, really bad. But at least I am halfway done at least with the big one's!

Looks like your team is working together to make things better for you.  Praying things only get better for you.
