If I have included a bad link, google the word "Scholar", click link for "Google Scholar". Search for the name of the paper and author in Google Scholar.
My personal experience was very good. Good luck to you
So I am mushing forward...
Chemo is just a word. Don't be afraid of it.
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.
Have tried Rebif, tysbri, now novantrone.
First treatment was September 3, 2009. Went ok.
Only side effect was slight nausea.
Weekly blood test to monitor white blood cell count.(4 weeks).
