Well, today I completed round 2 of Cycle 1 of ABVD treatments. It went pretty well. I have discovered I love numbing cream. What a great invention! I rub it on my port and I don't even feel the needle go in. It is just a great thing!!!!
Phil and I were at the doctor's office for about 5 hours. My regular oncologist is out of town so I so the other oncologist. He says I seem to be responding well to chemo with no bad side effects. I have no mouth sores and he said if I didn't have them by now I most likely wouldn't get them. I am still worried about my hair falling out. It is amazing how much emphasis we place on hair. I think because my hair is so thick thinning will do me some good. I always wanted thinner hair or it might all fall out. Oh well! It will grow back.
I feel good this evening. If my sysmptoms are like last time I felt bad on Wed. and Thurs. after chemo. I think I can handle two days. Last time I lost 3 pounds but because I felt so good last week I gained back 5. Oh well!
