TJM Posted May 20, 2020 Share Posted May 20, 2020 Been awhile since I posted an update. I have been staying up on the posts tho. On last round of Chemo this week. Each round has been a bit worse side effect wise, but much of that is because of my cluster headaches. Bottom line is I am convinced the anti nausea medicine makes them worse so I quit taking and paid the price. Also, I think my problems two weeks ago could have been partly low blood counts. Will admit this last treatment has me more stressed rather than less. Getting a brain MRI on Thursday, then a Cat scan on June 1st so scanziety might be part of it. Plus I am a tad worried about general radiation. Seems like more potential long term side effects. Meet with Rad Onc next week to get set up. I am looking forward to a three week break from treatment as I feel physically good after just one week. Not sure what the long term plan will be as for work. I have a very stressful job that is not task driven. Since the odds are pretty good that I will get a reoccurrence I am questioning if I want to spend what could be myvlast few years working. Tho not rich, I am in a position to survive not working. Funny how much less money you spend when not working and in quarantine. I feel blessed that I was mostly treated pre COVID and tho not a fan of my Governor at least I could continue treatment during lockdown. I really feel terrible for those whose treatment was affected Peace Tom Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
