Pretty much right on Tdubz. I was down for just 1 day, back to 80% next and then pretty much full on from then on.
I worked everyday, including the 1 day of exhaustion, but just for 2 hours. I walked every day 2-4 miles, except for exhaustion day - I walked to mail box.
I did experience some mild chest pain around the port/liver/lung side a bit. I'm thinking it was just from lifting weights as I lifted the day before for about 30 minutes and had similar discomfort associated as when I first had port installed.
Perhaps I should limit the weight lifting to lifts that do not move the port.
Tomorrow is big day number 2 chemo session for me. I hope it will be as non-eventful as the first.

I feel weak on treatment week, can't imagine lifting weights now lol. I've also cut back to only 1 or 2 dex pills during treatment week so that might explain lower energy. I'll be honest, I wasn't the most in shape guy before. I'm probably in the better shape now than I have been in the last 10 years, which is sad and funny at the same time. Losing 40 lbs in a month is a good motivator for exercise lol.
I went into work last week. I think I can manage going in on off weeks just fine. Trying to work from home on treatment weeks but waiting for approval on that.
I did notice my cold sensitivity was much worse this go around. The past two times it was only a very slight sensitivity. It went away after a few days but the throat lingered on for a few more days after that. It wasn't to bad, just felt like something rough was in my throat each time I'd swallow something cold. It went away after day 7. Hands were good to go after day 3. No foot problems at all. This time around it was crazy. Tried drinking a milkshake and my entire mouth and throat exploded into a tingling sensation. Like when your hand falls asleep but more painful. Very strange sensation.
Hoping your round 2 is as easy as the first. It sounds like you live in a state that allows more alternative medicines. That sure would make these few days a lot more enjoyable lol.
