mary colleen Posted January 29, 2007 Share Posted January 29, 2007 My husband finished his chemo treatments about 10 days ago, and has been very sick ever since that final week. He has severe edema in the arms and legs, weakness, body pain, nausea, fatigue, a rash all over his torso, SOB, and critically low platelet counts. He has had one platelet transfusion, and will be evaluated for another on Tuesday. He has difficulty just moving short distances around the house. He is becoming pretty depressed, and I am just trying to keep him focused on recovery. Since he is now 10 days out from his final treatment, and there are no signs of improvement yet, I'm starting to wonder how long it will take him to recover. I'm sure that others here have had some experience with chemo toxicity and recovery - any thoughts on how long it might take to get back to normal? Thanks!
