Chemo 17.0

September 22, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Round 17 is now done and dusted.

After 17 rounds, there is a real challenge to maintain perspective and perseverance, particularly when there is no firm end to the treatment. The oncologist tells me that I am already her longest lasting patient on this particular regime at 17 rounds. I told her I’m aiming for 30.

If anything, round 17 was a little more tolerable than the previous one, I needed less anti-emetics to control the nausea, and the fatigue was as expected. There is a lingering fatigue now that goes past the first few days that never used to be there, and that can be frustrating. Round 16 left me tired for at least a week before I felt normal again.

Till the next round…
