Chemo Therapy is a contradiction of terms, like "Free Love" there is no such thing, every thing has its price. "Therapy" sounds like a little nap on a couch or aroma oils and gentle massages. In reality when mixed with Chemo it is like taking a bath in a shark tank. There is tons of "collateral damage" some probably not discovered until autopsy when they cut you open to find out what really went wrong. I am permanently sterile which might come in handy someday, at least in my dreams it could be useful! The "cat scans" and "pet scans" are the equivelent of 420 X-rays and are known to cause cancer in themselves, so that is a great thought.
Your hair grows back and pretty fast too so that's no
big deal and the weight you lose won't stay gone!
What is bothersome are my damned hands! I have
"Neuropathy" in them something bad! They hurt
24 hours a day and the only difference is sometimes
they hurt worse, throbbing and swollen, like stirring
a bucket of cut glass. I am getting used to this; they
are not getting better. When I am not working I
wear rabbit fur lined gloves and that helps a lot. I
wear them when I sleep at night. I am anxious to return to work.
