We are set to have the chemo port inserted and then will begin the chem a week later.
Chemo was well tolerated, I had some side effects (nausea a lot), but could be handled with medication, hair loss, fever for a few days, but mostly I was worried, not sure what was happening. Chemo did work however and am in remission now.
I achieved full remission after induction. Because of chromosomal abnormalities, I'm continuing chemo until a Stem Cell Donor is found.
