2nd Chemo Therapy Treatment

My second chemo treatment was August 27th. There were a few minor problems getting started. Not sure if it was my attitude or the nurses attitude - a little of both I believe. It was not the best of experiences and it made for a very long day. The chemo takes 6 to 6 1/2 hours to drip and then a 30 minute visit with the oncologist or PA.

Third day after chemo I did have side effects again – joint and muscle pain that is horrific. The oncologist said that approximately 60% of people on this chemo get these particular side effects. At least I have had no nausea or vomiting.
