Side Effects

Not much to report other than that the side effects from the chemotherapy are ever so present. Fortunately I've had next to no nausea. I had a hint of it and took a anti-nausea medication and it was gone. The predominant side effect is what I can only describe as feeling toxic - like having chemically induced flu symptoms, specifically aching throughout my body. Lot's of fun.

The side effects do seem to be less present at night which is why I am able to complete this entry right now - I'm finally feeling well enough. Earlier today there was no way I was going to do anything at the computer. Not to mention I slept from about noon until 4 pm. Another chemotherapy side effect. Looking forward to a little relief.

  1. Oh Bert,

    Hang in there... I hated that crummy, toxic feeling. I was wondering last night if the chemicals are really gone yet, or if I am still carrying them around. For the most part, all the side effects are gone (except for the baldness...).

    So, as I said, hang in there. One day at a time you WILL get through it, and some day you will be on this side of all of it.

    Take care,
