I've had my first chemo treatment (Carboplatin, Taxol and Herceptin). I guess as side affects go, mine have not been horrible, though I got nauseous 24 hrs after and felt pretty horrible until about the 6th day. (Seems like the Anti-Nausea drugs are really just anti-vomiting.) Now I seem to feel more like myself. Seems like I am getting in some form or another (howbeit usually mild)just about every single side affect they warned me about. My daughters and I are almost laughing every time I get another one. STILL...I'm curious, can any of you tell me if the worst treatment is the first one or do they get worse as you go. My treatments are scheduled one every three weeks. Would like to hear some other "stories"...so I can hopefully plan a little. Like I know they tell me that almost to the day on Day 14 I can expect to lose my hair. I have a week left
... I'm wanting to plan a trip to visit my sis and Dad the week after my next treatment and am wondering if that is dreaming. Ideas?? Thanks everyone. I couldn't walk this road without all of you.
