29/31 Done! Almost to the finish line. I realize I've been miscounting treatments. My last one on Monday will be 31.
pokyspider: That was exactly what I needed to read! Thanks for taking the time to post it.
I really don't know why I'm having such a hard time now with the fatigue and nausea. I stopped all my walking, except the 6 flights of stairs to and from treatment. The nausea is very manageable, but the fatigue is crazy. My arms and legs are heavy and my mind is foggy. I'm usually the one who gets through rough stuff like a champ, with minimal side effects. I just don't know why this is now kicking my butt. It's been a bit of a roller coaster for me.
My appointment with the nutritionist was cancelled by her, last minute, yesterday. Not happy with that.
My skin is better since they started the boosts to spare the whole breast from becoming more compromised. I only have two more treatments, then DONE! I ordered “Breakfast for a Crowd", from Einstein's Bagels to be delivered to the Radiation Department, Monday, my last day. I can't do enough for those angels who have made my treatments pleasant. Every single one of them has been supportive, loving and professional throughout.
I'm interested to hear about others experiencing this crazy fatigue. I knew to expect it, and after chemo, I thought I'd be prepared to handle it easier. I'm usually not a whiner, and I'm not comfortable with it at all!
I'm so happy for those of you who are doing well. Keep posting your encouraging experiences. To those who are struggling, hang in there, you are not alone, and this too, shall pass. We are strong and will be whole again, in mind, body and spirit.
