Does anyone else feel worse on the second week after chemo? On days 8-10 I am so fatigued, last weekend I had a migraine for four days. I'm on my pump for number 8 right now and feel great. I think the steroids they give me help the first week then I hit the wall. I get discouraged because my family tries to plan things for the off week and I can barely get out of bed. The doctor said my blood counts are their lowest after 7 days of chemo beating me up and then they build back up by day 13 to do it again. The good news is only 4 more, although my platelets were kinda low and we pushed this one, I may have to delay the next one to three weeks. My side effects haven't been too bad, I struggle with constipation, not diarrhea like most people.
