Y'all are amazingly resilient. I had 6 cycles of TCHP last fall and then continued the H & P until mid-August. The chemo utterly kicked my a--. I was so completely nauseated that no matter what meds they gave me for nausea, I just kept vomiting. I lost about 45 lbs in 4 months. I also had an allergic reaction to one of the nausea medicines, so I couldn't take anything for nausea after that. The first chemo was the worst-- I honestly thought I would die about a week later. I had to go in and see my onc, who promptly lowered the dose he was giving me, and gave me a bunch of other meds to make it easier. They just didn't work for me. I was so wiped out by it that I didn't leave the house except to go to the doctor or pharmacy for most of the time I was on it.....
