I've been gone a few days dealing with Irma but power is back on and just surrounded by debris. We were so lucky.
I'm so sorry to hear about those of you who are experiencing such a tough time with subsequent cycles. It is challenging when we think we know the ropes and chemo throws a curve ball.
For those that are icing. I did buy the socks at Amazon but unfortunately each pair only came with one set of inserts. I might not have ordered the right ones. Fortunately I bought three sets. I did ice diligently but also did experience some neuropathy but I had some before due to early diabetes. I will say that for the most part it has resolved. I will ice again this Friday with infusion number two.
I lost most of my hair in the last few days and finally buzzed it. I already hate the wigs that I bought but I am stuck with them. I wish I could get one on line because I see cute ones but I can see that getting expensive if there is a no return policy. I am using scarves and they feel good.
Sami your daughter is beautiful and I know she will get through this. I pray her SE's are lessened.You are such a good support.
I am wondering if anyone did better with the Neulasta shot on subsequent treatments. My first one tortured me and I am dreading it again.
