Uncomfortable y Numb

by Tom on September 8th, 2009

The last week has been extraordinarily relaxing. As soon as therapy was over, we hit the road and headed to our safe house. Extended family time was a great way to recouperate and celebrate the good news. I am so very thankful for opportunities like that.

Shifting gears: I can definitely tell that those G-CSF injections after my last chemotherapy helped me bounce back better. This time: no injections. This time: I’m feeling weaker than one row on a calendar.

See? Even my bad jokes have low blood counts!

Current side effects on tap include getting all bloaty from just about anything I eat, and a noticeable increase in the loss of sensation in my fingertips. The former is annoying, the latter is worrying. Here’s hoping the numbness is reversable!

And my heart has again started faster than normal while at rest. Since I’ve already run into this on a previous cycle I’ll be able to keep more calm this time. CALM!!!

All of this has happened before, and all of this will (likely) happen again. Three more times.

    Tom are you checking with the doc on this?

    Yup! I checked and they recommended some stuff to aid in digestion, and some vitamins that might help lessen the numbness.

    I’ve got my numb fingers crossed!
