MelanieLR Posted January 27, 2005 Share Posted January 27, 2005 Hi all, I feel like such a whiner but I just don't know what to do anymore. All I seem to feel like doing anymore is sleep. I sleep about 18-20 hours a day. My chemo has been over for about 5 weeks now & I feel worse than ever. I don't feel like eating any more, I run a fever off & on, I'm starting to lose my strength and I just feel like this is as good as it's going to get. Why did I go through all those treatments? This is not the quality of life I anticipated in exchange for giving a little over 6 months of the remainder of my life to treatments. Then my onc. cheerfully states that we've probably bought me 6 months. Wow, 6 months of 4 to 6 waking hours of misery. I'm wishing that either I never agreed to the treatment or that I had seen a different oncologist. In the beginning, I was comfortable with him. Then as new complaints would come up, I began to realize that he didn't give a hoot. By then, I was so far into treatment that I was afraid that changing onc's would be detrimental to the overall effectiveness of the treatment. I'm looking through my HMO directory for a new onc now but I'm afraid it may be too late. To anyone out there who starts to have bad feelings about your onc - RUN, don't walk to find another one. Thanks for letting me vent, Melanie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
