I,ve posted some bits and pieces ,along the way, about my case history, hoping that some of my experiences might come in helpful.
I thought that I would update about my chemo.
I had 3x21 days of ecx after my staging laparoscopy back in May 2011.
I managed to come through without too many negative factors. Mainly general fatigue which cut in session 3.
I assumed, after my surgery in October 2011, and then a 6 week rest that when I recommend the 3 x 21 day ecx cycles post op, that I would witness about the same.
In the post op programme, Session 1 was, as expected, not too onerous, however session 2 proved to take longer to recover from the initial big hit of first week drugs. I experienced a fair amount of nausea although that went after week 2 . Fatigue cut in and lasted much longer than session 1 . In session 3 it has increased even more, more nausea, which seems to be subsiding but waves of complete fatigue which doesn't seem to dissipate as quickly as before, I have another 12 days to go before the end of the programme and I feel that the fatigue will hover for the rest of the outstanding time left. Oh yes, constant feeling of tinnitus ,as well...the bells...the bells !
I hope some of this detail might be helpful.
Best wishes to all
