Bag change has been quite quick for me. About 5-7 minutes right out of the shower. I usually shower with the bag on then change it afterwards. 9th round of Folfox this Wednesday. Neuropathy has been a bit rough, numbess in hands and feet is worse at night, more feet then hands. Typing on keyboard you feel it more on the hands.
Mike are you done with your chemo soon? i can't wait to be done and get reversal, even though the bag is not to bad, I miss sleeping on my tummy. Plus I don't want to go in the pool with it and my kids like when parents are in there with them.
I walked my dogs today with my daughter (10 year old) to my Mom's house and back, round trip 4k steps. LOL....I need to do more, I will be more active once I am done with this. I am going to do the Body Beast workout.
