If it wasn't for feeling cold all the time. The extreme leg pain, The barfing, The wonderful metal taste you get in your mouth, and the overall just feel like crap for 5 or 6 days. Chemo isn't too bad!! Did I miss anything? LOL

Life is funny sometimes

    Hey Brook
    That's funny ever sins I started chemo I could not take the coldness I'm always cold
    For the taste I have not experience that but my brother-in-law would go on about it he would eat salty thing to take away the taste I don't know if that works or not but when he was a live that what he like to do
    They are changing my chemo come the first of the year so that mite be something I will go throw

    You missed the day #5
    You missed the day #5 floodgates opening - the switch from constipation to diarrhea - one of my favorites...

    How do you stop diarrhea when you can't keep Immodium down? That is my new challenge.

    Feeling like crap - I'd say that is putting it VERY MILDLY!

    Off in a few minutes to get my Neupogen shot so I am ready to do it all again on Dec 3rd.

    Oh and let's not forget about farting in the perfume isle with teary red eyes and a runny nose. Life is good getting to the other side of the store in 5 seconds.
