It’s been a couple of days since my first round of chemo, so I thought I’d check in. First of all, it’s not so bad. The nausea is on par with morning sickness, which I know I can get through. The heartburn was a surprise, but Zantac is keeping it under control.
Mostly, it’s fatigue. Not like oh I stayed up too late and could use a nap, but like full body weariness. My knees are weak and the thought of doing anything physical fills me with overwhelming blerg. As I told my husband this morning: “I feel like I’m made out of butter.”
Which is all much better than the shivering pale head-in-the-toilet creature that I was afraid of. I think I can do this!

That is great news and I am hoping my chemo is the same as yours. There are certainly some horror stories out there so it is nice to read yours. So far so good. I hope the nausea and fatigue goes away soon xx
You *can* get through this.
And when you struggling, just remember the legion of people who have your back.
Think? Bah! We know you can!
Very excited to hear you are doing OK. You got this! Love to you and family
You are such a tough chick. Thanks for keeping us updated.
Agreed. You can do this, and you’ll do it with grace and panache as well as a delightfully foul mouth.
