Started chemo last week. My doctor has been very pleased with my progress post-surgery - fast healing and "optimal tumor de-bulking." This first round of chemo has been manageable except for a couple of days. 17 more rounds to go! I understand the impact on the body is cumulative, so I expect some rough patches here and there. However, many of the patients are working full time (glad I'm retired!), so I'm trying to take the doctor's advice and have some activities to keep me busy and out of trouble. I'm getting caught up on letter-writing, and hope to get out into the garden once the weather warms up a bit more.
One thing that helps is to keep on top of the nausea, eat small meals more frequently, and get enough sleep, including a nap each day. I'm also going for a short walk every day, with different friends taking turns keeping me company, so my husband can get out and do more of his own stuff - visiting friends and so on.
Hope all is well with all of you.
