Too Soon To Tell
So far my complaints are stomach pain, constipation, and the sloughing off of the skin on the inside of my mouth. No nausea at all, some fatigue, but only able to get 5-6 hours of sleep a night. I have been working full time night shift (40 hours), with the exception of the two days I take off for my chemo treatment.
