prob could’ve pm’d this but haven’t really got to grips with it all! Anwyay, I just wanted to wish you well for your first day 1 CMF tomorrow. I had a really good time on the Epi, largely due to the Neulasta I was having I think, and so was personally quite worried about switching to CMF. I was used to the Epi and knew how it would make me feel so was shi**ing myself about how the 3 different dugs in the CMF would affect me.
Anyway, I have found the CMF to be even more tolerable than the Epi. I have much more energy and virtually no nausea. Like you I was worried that I may not be fully recovered for my day 8 dose but thankfully this has not been the case at all! The day 8 is exactly the same as the day 1 drug wise. Having had accelerated epi every 2 weeks I am loving the 3 week break between each treatment. The only probs I have had with the CMF is occassional tummy upset, but they give me meds for that and it seems to clear up pretty quickly.
The CMF goes through much quicker than the Epi and they can use a million different veins for it which is good. One of the drugs can make you feel a little lightheaded when it is being given and if this is the case I just shut my eyes and lie back. The feeling goes as quickly as it comes and is not altogether unpleasant!
Take care and let me know how you get on. I’ll be thinking of you,
