Update: just finished treatment #3. The treatment must be cumlative. I do a blood CBC test about 10-14 days after the treatment to check the impact to my immune system. Treatment #2's blood work showed my immune system really took a dive. So much so, that before Treatment #3 they made me do another test to verify that the white blood cell count had come back UP. It did and I was able to take Treatment #3.
My normal recoup time was about 6 days. This means:
Friday - Day 1: Headache, tired, sleepy, semi nauseous
Sat - Day 2: tired, sleepy semi nauseous
Sun - Day 3 : more of the above
Mon - Day 4: tired, sleepy and less naseau
Tues - Day 5: Usually not 100% but I would return to work.
Wed - Day 6: same as day 5
Thurs - Day 7 - feel totally normal
After Treatment #2, I started losing major amounts of hair. So much so, I cut my shoulder length hair to shortest its ever been so the hair loss isn't so obvious.
This time, Treatment #3,, I wasn't feeling well enough to go back to work till Day 7, on Thursday, due to fatigue and nausea. Everyone kept telling me you look tired, why are you here at work?
Today is Day #8 and I am still tired. I plan to sleep alot and lay around most of tomorrow. I would like to do church and make a nice meal for the fam on Sunday, but I will be definitely taking it easier..
Now the Good News: I am sorry if this is TMI - Too Much Info, but I actually feel Horny!!!!! After having my 'mojo' be missing in action, I actually have been dreaming sexual dreams and thoughts of a 'wild and crazy' nature.
Have not told hubby yet. I am going to rest alot this weekend and hope I can get the kidlets out of the house so I can seduce their dad. WoooHOOO!!!
Plus I have had some reduction in the amount of numbness in my legs. Which had been steadily and slowly progressing. I have PPMS. So anyhow, will try to post.
