Thank you so much for your kind words.
The last days have been very hard, psychologically and physically speaking, but I'm finally getting better.
The two first days were the worse regarding neuropathy. Then it got better, but from day 2 I got this dreaded feeling that my body would fall apart at any moment and very strong nausea. I was loosing my mind.
I don't now if the Oxi has finally wore off or if the new drugs are better for managing nausea but since yesterday I'm feeling a LOT better. So I can manage.
Just wanted to update.
Thank you so much for Always being a light in the end of the tunnel...
PS: Dear CRGuy
I will try my best to do the Oxi. Not because of the stats, but because I need to do everything I can so than I don't have to deal with this crap anymore. No one really knows if it makes a difference, but I will try it until I can. I've spoken to my oncologist and she said, if the neuropathy isn't gone until the next round, we are reducing the dosage. And I'm taking your tipp and asking for a slower infusion rate for the next time around.
You are always such a great deal of help.. thank you!
