I'm just finishing my second Folfox and since during the first one I was pretty low energy and lethargic and my friend kennyt reported pretty serious numbness in the fingers after his second treatment, I freaked out a little bit.
This time I have nothing so far. No horsey voice like last time, not much cold sensitivity, not even the zing in the jaw at the first bite. The only difference is that last time I almost fainted while I was getting my calcium and magnesium so they had to stop it. This time had no problem so they gave me the whole dose.
It's crazy how different we react to the same thing. Let's hope the third treatment won't be much worse. But who knows. Chemo is just as sneaky as the disease it tries to cure.
