I have to admit I wrote in September 2019 chemo thread and then i was wondering why no one was answering. *face palm*. Started chemo brain before even receiving the chemo it seems!
I am starting with TCHP tomorrow on Friday, 24th of September. I will receive it for 6 times with 3 weeks in between.
Feel like I am late to September club and early for October one.
Heard first admission is very long, hope I can pass the time. I will be receiving cooling for hands and feet through the machine at the clinic. They don't have cooling solution for hair yet so I ordered something online yesterday night, it has some gel packs inside a cap, hope that works and doesn't induce headache. I can do without one more side effect.
Yesterday I went to the hairdresser to cut my usually very long hair. It doesn't look half as bad as I thought it would be, hoping to keep a part of it at least for a month or so, not planning to shave, but if it starts shedding too bad, I might have to change plans.
Just had a soda with lemon, trying to remember, am I not supposed to eat any citrus fruits? Orange, lemon etc. I google and see conflicting information on those, some say eat it daily, some say avoid.
Wish everyone the best with your ongoing treatment.
