I had my last a/c treatment on Friday so today is my down day...yuck...But its 11:15 am here and I had a bowl of cereal, 24 ounces of liquid, a piece of toast, 2 poptarts, and some watermelon so I guess I am surviving it.

I take comfort from knowing that all of you who have gone on to taxol/herceptin think its easier than the ac so I just need to get thru this week...but I definitely am zapped.

Thanks for the ear
Linda T

    You need a day to rest and watch a funny movie to bring some cheer... Have you seen Planes Trains and Automobiles??? It doesn't matter how many times I've seen it .. It always cracks me up!! I hope you get to feeling better soon!!!

    Hi! I am glad you are doing Ok. I just have Herceptin now and basically no side-effects. Just rest all you need. You probably are zapped if it was your last a/c treatment.
    Hope you get to feeling better really soon. Energy takes a while to return.

    I'm there with you. I just finished my AC treatment and just had my first Taxol/Herceptin, so far I'm just feeling tired. Good luck to you! :) Diane

    Linda, reading your post is
    Linda, reading your post is making me hungry! I am glad you have gotten through those awful AC treatments! They were very difficult for me, but as others hve said, Taxol is waaaaay easier! I did not have herceptin, but from wht I have heard, thats ok too.

    Good luck w/the rest of your treatments. Eil

    I am glad that you are
    I am glad that you are eating, and I agree that Taxol is easier on the system than A/C is. The tiredness is horrible, tho~ it's what I hated the most about chemo. I had neuropathy in my ankels which gradually left, thankfully! You are well on your way to putting this behind you, and Dancing with NED!
