Day #35 -Almost halfway there……

I thought I had escaped a week free of “most” of the side effects from A/C chemo but woke up this morning with extreme nausea and pain in the back of my head again. Ugh. It’s so strange how it can have such a “delayed reaction” and then hit me an entire week later out of nowhere. But this is something I am learning to live with…. for now.

My eyes have been burning for about 2 weeks. I thought this was due to allergies but apparently it’s yet another symptom to heap on to the list, along with dizziness, nausea, fatigue, metal taste, mouth sores, bone pain, headaches, etc.

The Claritin seems to be helping with the rib and muscle pain and I only have one more Neulasta shot to endure so there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

I just found out today that I will have to get another echocardiogram to ensure my heart is strong enough to endure the last A/C treatment on May 21. This is a standard procedure to test heart function and I expect everything will be fine.

Next Thursday 5/21 is the last of the 4 A/C part of my treatment and then beginning on June 2 I will start 8 weeks of Taxol, followed by 6 weeks of radiation. 62 days of chemo left. The countdown is on!
