Today I had my eight chemo (fourth Taxol) and am travelling well. No nausea just a wee bit of neuropathy in my fingers and fatigue, but we are keeping an eye on botht. I must say Taxol is certainly much easier that EC.
So far hair loss is the worse symptom, I was hoping to keep my eyebrows but they are wisping away, as are my eyelashes. My head hair seems to be coming back, a soft fuzz is appearing - white but there.
I feel well. I am still juicing and I have cut dairy out of my diet (well 90%) and am eating little bits frequently. Preparing little pots of goodness was a a wonderful suggestion from a fellow pink chick. My taste buds are back, except water is a bit "soapy" so I am having it chilled or bubbly.
Exercise is a challege. 10 minutes on the bike sends to the burn zone, but I am persisting. Sometimes I have trouble co-ordinating for tai chi which is a source of humour. I was never the most co-ordinated person, now even less. Thank heavens my Wii oponents dont critcise my attempts at dance or tennis.
I had my first full bowen/emmett massage on Monday. Felt great afterwards. No muscle pain in my back since and my legs are no longer "restless" when I try to sleep. I will be going back this Monday for another.
Onwards I go. Looking forward to September 20 - my last chemo.
