melaniem Posted October 14, 2004 Share Posted October 14, 2004 OK, who's all had cisplatin and taxol for their chemo??? I will have it once every 3 weeks for 4 rounds. The onc nurse said to plan on being there all day. I did a search on this site yesterday when i found out and it doesn't sound so good..... as if ANY chemo would???? Any thoughts from my fellow warriors??? Also, tell me that everyone battles depression. I know my prognosis is actually quite good, the surgery was successful, I just have to do this chemo to be sure nothing got left behind. My head knows all of that. But my heart gets on this pity trip of "Why ME, I just want my life back, no one understands, blah, blah, blah...." . Last week was really bad so I've gone back to work this week, part-time. I figured part of my problem was being cooped-up here at home for so long. It's been 5 weeks since surgery. Yesterday was day 1 and I got really tired but it felt good to be out among people. I seem to jump from anger to depression and back again. I'm sure it's completely normal, I just hope it passes like everything else with time. Thanks to all who have held my hand, don't let go, we're not quite finished. Love to everyone. Melanie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
