Sorry for not posting. I’ve been a little wiped out. Things finally turned for the better yesterday. So I’ve had two days of okay as opposed to icky. The good news is that the Adriamycin/Cytoxan stage of the chemo is over!
For the next 2 months, I’ll be getting a different type of chemo: Taxol. It chases cancer cells and kills them in a different way than the other chemo did. It’s complicated, but there are many different ways to kill a cancer cell, and typically chemo combos try a variety of strategies. So, taking Taxol will keep increasing my chances of staying cancer free. 🙂
However, Taxol is delivered in a substance that can cause highly allergic reactions, so, I get to take 5 steroid pills at 11 pm, and ANOTHER 5 at 5 am. Did I mention that nighttime is when I like to SLEEP??? I know getting through the new chemo well is the top priority, but oh my. I guess the good news is that I’ll be so wired from the steroids that I won’t notice how tired I am from the lack of sleep.;0
