Not much to update, except that the cumulative effects of the chemo are definitely being felt. Sunday I couldn’t keep anything down – in either direction. That meant the Monday I was feeling extremely weak. I went to work, but had to stay home today while I gathered my strength. I was able to eat more today, and while I still have diarrhea, I no longer have nausea. I feel better. I will have to figure out a way to control the nausea for the few days after chemo.
I managed to get myself to my scheduled echo in the afternoon. The echo checks that the chemo isn’t doing any damage to my heart. It was painless and fairly quick. I have an appointment with Dr. Priya on Thursday. Sometime soon I hope to have a definitive answer on whether the Taxol rounds of chemo is going to be 10 or 12 weeks.
