That sounds pretty horrible & definitely vent worthy!

It's not fair!!!

Hopefully you'll be feeling well enough to play with your babes soon:)

Please keep us updated on your progress, have been thinking of you(not in a stalker kinda way).

Well done for getting through so far & wishing you better times ahead xx

I'm sorry OP, I hope you start to feel better soon and that someone is looking after you.

How many more rounds to go?

Wishing you the best of outcomes. :bighug:

Thank you everyone,your virtual hugs mean a lot :-)
Littleboysrock, its so lovely to know that an internet 'random' cares. The chemo is doing exactly what it should be which is why i am trying to only curse the side effects ;-) The oncologist was very happt with my progress after three chemo sessions.
I have 12 more to go! I am assured that they will not knock me around the way the first four have :-)

I'm glad the oncologist is happy with your progress OP :)

And you are 1/4 of the way through, that's something.

Come back and vent again whenever you need to. Cancer sucks in a big way and so does the treatment.

Vent away OP.  We are always here to listen.

I hope the rest of your treatment does what it needs to without giving you too many side effects.

Thinking of you OP - it sounds like you are getting good care and glad to hear that progress is good.  Sucks that you have to go through the side effects though - very valid vent.  Take care of yourself and let people know when you need to be looked after.

Vent away hun.  I am on round 19 of three different chemos plus immune therapy.  I have chemo every two weeks for 3 days straight.  Its toxic crap.  It messes with your head.  I have to be on it for the rest of my life.  As it what is keeping me alive.

It sux that only people who have done chemo can understand it all.  Some days, I just want it all to stop and go back to my old life of precancer.

It sounds like you are heading towards the finish line.  Just stay focused on that.

Good luck with your treatment. xx

Well here's another internet random thinking of you OP.

Thankfully I haven't been through what you are going through myself but from all accounts, chemo is bloody hard work.

Keep your eye on the end goal! Your doctor is pleased with your progress so it sounds like it's working.

Vent whenever you need to, it completely sucks and is unfair. We'll be here to listen.
