I was ok when getting the infusion . I been home since 12pm . Took a nap I think about an hour not sure it’s because my Xanax was making tired . Now getting a little , some minor stomach issue . Not too painful . Been writing everything down what I feel . So far just a little tired . I wonder at which cycle do u get really fatigued or the xeolda pills will make me tired too because I have to take it 14 days straight . Sigh after tonight 13 more days than 1 week off . Can’t wait . Counting down for 3 more cycles to go. Hopefully everything works out with my blood count . Thank you everyone for your great advice .
I did Xelox also. Now that you've done one you don't have the fear of the unknown to deal with regarding getting an infusion. They week off from the pills was glorious. It felt like a mini-vacation for me and I joked that I pretended I was a normal person during that week.
