Number 3 tomorrow?
After a week off due to low WBC counts, I will present myself tomorrow afternoon for treatment 3. I hope I can do it. Am a bit concerned as the neuro side effects have lingered on, appearing sporadically through the week, even after skipping a dose. I know I shouldn't compare myself to others, but a gentleman that began his treatments (same protocol) at the same time I did has had VERY MINIMAL reaction to anything --- and he has 25 years on me! My onc. says everyone's enzymes react differently and I shouldn't be discouraged. My hair is still falling out too, a little bit everyday, so I proactively bought a wig on Friday. Maybe I won't need it, but it made me feel better. Trying very hard to stay off the self-pity bandwagon and focus on my many blessings. On the upside, the weekend has been beautiful, weather-wise, and I have been able to go for lots of walks and drink cold beverages the last several days!! I may even have ice cream tonight, not that I need it -lol.
