I can't help you with that question, I start my in 4 weeks. I have to heal up from surgery first, but I'm not looking forward to it. I know it's hard on a lot of ladies, and some it doesn't bother as much. Just remember we all are different in healing and pain. Hang in there, things will get better day by day. Sending prayers and love your way, 🙏🏻💕and remember your a warrior 😊

The day after your chemo are they giving you an immune boost shot. If so go buy claritan not the D one. Take it an hour before your shot. Take one pill a day for 5 days. Helps keep neck and joints from hurting. A nurse told me the trick

I also have experienced neuropathy in my fingers and toes. My oncologist put me on gabapentin and symbalta. They have helped take the worst of it away. My first chemo also hit me hard, they did get more tolerable as my body seemed to adjust. I have had 9 rounds and find out on Wednesday the results of my last scan.
