I'm a little late posting this- as I had no choice but to go back to work which has been EXHAUSTING!!! My Oncologist is happy with my blood levels so he released me to go back 8/1- I'm obviously very happy that my levels are good.
Unfortunately, the chemo caused other issues (according to my neurologist) and I am still VERY tired- BUT again thankfully not NEARLY as tired as I was a year ago at this time. A year ago, before FCR-Lite I wouldn't be able to watch TV at night much at all without falling asleep while watching (and while fast forwarding LOL) and that would be a show that started at 8pm! I would fall asleep during teaching etc.
Now, I still SOMETIMES doze off and have a hard time staying awake in the afternoon at work but overall it's so much better, but my memory isn't as good and I have a few other issues.
But I wanted to say that in my opinion it was worth it because I can actually do things and not worry about when my nap is, I can (since I have no choice) go to work, I can watch TV :), I can go to lunch and enjoy it without my friends saying "we should go before you fall asleep";
Overall, most of my blood work is close to normal, my WBC hasn't been this close to normal in probably close to 10 years! My lymphocytes are even getting close to normal. I am back on W&W which is good! I see my Oncologist again in 2 more months then if all keeps going well, we will move it to 6 months
I wanted to thank you all for your support during the last year especially, I complained a lot about not having my "real" family for support and you guys always listened and were nice about it...
As soon as I can "get ahead" at work which hopefully will be this weekend, I promise I will try to come on more often!
