Well onto the next round of chemo. Round 1 Taxol. No bad reactions so far but my body doesnt like the new new anti nausea drug - so no more of that for me. However other than an achey back ( which is possibly because I have been out and about with vengance the past two days) there are no major problems ** knock on wood**. But my eyebrows are disappearing. I was sooo hoping to keep them, alas it is not to be.
What have I learnt this round - well thanks to a very wise pink lady, fruit tingles are magnificent. As are pineapple lifesavers. The flavour break through. And the most important is that the mind is a very powerful tool. I have been having success with the meditation and relaxation techniques - I slept the whole night through - it was wonderful.
Onwards I go 11 more Taxols and then the radiation. Finished by Christmas - it will be a celebration indeed.
