Hi all, I’m a new poster, just had my second out of three EC to be followed by three of docetexal. I had to laugh when I saw talk of fasting, I’m so hungry I fancy Curry, Chinese, chocolates anything all the time! I’m going to be the only chemo patient to put on weight. I do feel eating keeps the nausea down in my case. Like others I’m a bit groggy the first couple of days and then I’m buzzing from the steroids and waiting to do the hoovering at 7am so I don’t wake the family. Very tearful too which is not like me. I had a very bad reaction to the injections on day 6, so painful in pelvis and lower back, it felt like birth contractions, luckily was eased by painkillers. Not looking forward to next lot though. I too am having problems about being allowed to go to work, I work p/t for a charity and there is low risk work I could do but as I’m signed off they won’t let me in. I’m going to ask my GP if she can write a sick not that says I can work if I feel up to it. It’s been great hearing from you all, I think it really helps to know others are coping in their own way with this nasty disease. Best of luck to you all.
