Stage IIIa - complete removal of cancer 10/8/15 - adjuvant chemo Taxol/Carbo.
Completed my 2nd session last Monday 5th Ocober.
The pain in my legs has not been so severe this time but has lasted longer, the constipation has been helped by the Laxido that the doctor prescribed. Need to discuss sleep problems with the doctor (had my first good nights sleep for a week last night).
But I was not prepared for the feeling of vulnerability, I suppose it is the lack of sleep/tiredness/constant aches that I should have seen it as inevitable but as an active 63 year old it was a shock. Woke up this morning feeling entirely different so now have 2 weeks before the torture begins again!!
Used the cold cap for both sessions but the hair has started to fall badly so will need to decide whether to carry on but had a good appointment ay Guys with the 'wig' lady last Thursday where I tried on various colours/styles and walked away with a new head of hair that retails at £250.
Haven't had any 'pins and needles' in hands and feet that was told about but have had little 'electric shock' pains in my torso area - has anyone else experienced this?
Positivity is back!!!
