Chemo round 3 done

hey all , been away for awhile, just finished round 3 of chemo 3 drug cocktail courtesy of that nasty infusion pump. So, I got the good news bad news deal, the bad news is my Ono added a round, round 4 no one does 4 rounds. The good news is that now no chemo with radiation. Only have to deal with pain management instead of being hurt and sick. The other good news is on my last follow up Ono said she couldn't feel or see anything on my neck! It's tough to remember that chemo is your friend , the worst thing about chemo for me is taste! Everything taste bad. Anyone know how long before taste buds get back to some semblance of normal. Like to here your input and experiences.

In Christ, Kevin

I'm a little confused, it's late and maybe I did not read it correclty.

So you are going to get an extra chemo treatment but no rads going forward? I'm no doctor but I thought the rads cause the most taste damage...but then I only had Erbitux for my chemo....not the traditional hard stuff...

Either way you are moving forward to NED ... :)

Tim originally I was to have 3 rounds of chemo and then 35 days of rads concuurent with chemo, but instead I will do 4 rounds of chemo and 35 days of radiation with no chemo.
