So this is how it’s going to work?
Yesterday was my best day since Thursday’s first chemo treatment and so far today (Wednesday) is rivaling the worst.
There seems to be a natural reaction that the further removed from the day of chemo the better one should feel. Now, I know it doesn’t work that way but it remains a logical thought.
I even showered and went into the office yesterday around 1 p.m. I got one task done in about 45 minutes and started getting a headache, then within a few minutes I felt ‘woozy.’ It’s hard to focus I’ve noticed, even reading on my front porch with water, the dog, and beautiful weather.
So today I woke up with mild nausea, headache, upset stomach, and a little side effect from side effect medicine. Oh joy! No trip into work today.
I have discovered that time on the porch, with a wonderful breeze, my dog Eddie, and passing neighbors helps a lot. The learning process clearly continues.
