this one went about twice as fast!! Thanks for your prayers. As you can see by my new profile picture, I went for the buzz cut.

I'm still waiting to be congratulated for no. 2, if you know what I mean. Zophran can be quite a show stopper in so many ways.

Bet you never thought you would have that on your list.  Glad you are a little more relaxed now.  Others have said and it is true, you will be done before you know it and on with your life. 

Stay positive, Becky

Hi Jeff,

  I like the buzz cut, it looks good. Glad round 2 is behind you...before you know it you will be saying.."all done"! I took 1 Senokot every day after my evening diner and had no problem with my bowels. It's all natural,very mild and you can get it at Walmart. During chemo weeks I remember taking 2 tabs each day while doing the 5 days of prednisone. Once you go good, you can go back to 1 tab a day. I swear it works great. I'm so glad you are handling your treatments so well. Take care...Sue

Jeff,

Heads up ! (no pun intended). The buzz does look nice, but in a week  or so what the buzz left will be gone.

I lost even all of my eyebrows and eyelashes. Around the time the eyelashes fell out, my tear ducts got inflammed (mildly) which is something else that ABVD can cause.  Not meaning to be a killjoy, just making you aware.

Stay tough ! You look ready to lead a Marine Recon Platoon in that picture !
