10 days in and all going better than last month! A new drug in the body doing its work hopefully, but boy it made me unwell last month. This time round I am more aware of the signs when things are going belly up and I know what to do. I suppose that is the secret! With my 8 treatments of Carbo/platinum I felt I was in control and ready for all the symptoms but Caelyx is a different animal! Pretty tough on the old tum tum but we are learning to respect each other! Cant stop thinking of food but, have to eat small and often. So, all those lovely meals out I had on carbo/plat last year cannot continue with Caelyx. Pity, I enjoyed the lovely grub and took every opportunity to dine out.
Other than that, I am now in my regime and life is good! The cold weather seems to be gone and I can't but be enthuasistic about spring and the growth that is about to happen after this rain!.
What a different life I lead now with cancer. In my former life I taught full time and had lots of outside activities as well. I was always wishing to have more time for the garden etc and time to read. Now, I pray for the energy to be able to work in the garden, have my walk and I definitely think that a days work was easier than trying to keep myself healthy and fit during chemo.
Then again, life could be much worse so onwards and upwards we go enjoying every moment that we can!
