It's 5 days since I stopped chemo and radiation. Today is the first day I didn't need to take the anti-nausea meds. It will take some more time to wash the chemo drugs out of my system.
Instead of reporting the remaining side effects and symptoms I thought a top ten list of my least favorite side effects of the chemo and radiation would suffice.
TOP TEN THINGS I WILL NOT MISS ABOUT CANCER TREATMENTS
#10 Loss of Appetite
#9 Neuropathy of Hands and Feet
#6 Loss of strength
#5 Burning sensation when peeing
#4 That icky feeling of just not being right
#3 Radiation burns
and the number 1 thing I will not miss about cancer treatments is: Continous Diarrhea
If it sounds like I've been a bundle of joy for the last month or so you can see why. I am still experiencing some of the above mentioned maladies but hope they will dissipate soon.
Today was better than yesterday and I am hopeful that tomorrow will be better still.
