I guess my question is....has anybody not had the full 12 treatments and everything was alright?
.... I am done with chemo. Went Wednesday for tx and onc said, no more, your body can't handle anymore!
He said, while he wasn't thrilled, I did get in 10 tx, 8 tx with the oxi. I will have a CT Scan on the 13th, see him for the results on the 20th. Then he will arrange to have the port removed. I am sooo happy not having chemo anymore If I felt better, I would be throwing a party!
The onc gave me a medication for the neuropathy, hope it works! He said I might want to see a neurologist, in case
he missed something. I started the medication this morning (Lyrica), been a little dizzy, just ate and my stomach isn't feeling so hot......I want to feel better, not sick again!
I'm not sure which is worse, the neuropathy or feeling sick.....
I'm looking forward to the day that I feel "normal" again! I do have to say, I don't have that nasty taste in my mouth anymore
