Hello 2019whatayear (Victoria), it looks like I'm on almost the same chemo treatment plan as you. We will be chemo twinsies! I start AC on Tuesday. I had the CT & bone scan recently, too. The worst thing about the CT scan with contrast was drinking the barium drink. I just suggest cooling it in the fridge and then chugging it as quickly as you can.
Fairydragon, are you still feeling okay after your first round of chemo?

Then I have some basic beanies for the fall. And some very soft ones caps for at home/sleeping. Got them all from Amazon. I just can't bear the thought of wearing a wig in the summer heat and humidity here in PA. I may just go full bald.
Finana2: Ovaries acting up on top of everything else? I had the exact same thing a few months ago. Ovarian cyst ... had a couple ultrasounds and it eventually resolved. Recently my oncologist just threw out there "Oh, after all your treatment we should probably take out those ovaries, too."
I also have a large fibroid (Freddy Fibroid), so probably should just do a hysterectomy and get rid of all the lady parts. Just ... gaaaah! When will it end?
What are you all planning on doing during chemo to keep busy? I know I'll be really antsy and will hate sitting around all day. I joined Ancestry and was planning on digging into that. I have some new books. Any ideas?
