It has been a little while since my last post. Nothing really has changed. I am on this new chemo regiment which I absolutely despise. My body handles it well considering the myriad of side effects that I could have, however I am a prissy bitch. The new regiment has me going for infusion every other week however afterwards they suit me up with a wonderful little fanny pack of poison that continuously pumps medication into my body for 2 days. Sounds great right? What makes it even better is during that two day process, I have a tube coming out of my chest leading to the fanny pack which i get to worry about continuously as I sleep, ride the train or do pretty much anything. The new treatment has provided a wonderful array of side effects which make day to day slightly more irritating. I am pretty much rendered useless after chemotherapy and will just lay in front of an air conditioner hoping my body temperature will go down. The next couple days will consist of stomach cramps, and an overall haze that I go through which I have dubbed “Chemo Brain”. These side effects are minor considering the laundry list of side effects. (Plus I STILL have my hair). Overall the message of this post is simple. Chemo sucks, cancer sucks. I am dealing with it.
