The thing that sucks most about cancer treatment is side-effects. For me anyway. Sometimes there’s other things that suck more, but at the moment it’s side-effects. There’s drugs to stop, and minimise some side-effects and lotions, potions and pills to treat others, but sometimes they get to be too much. We (my medical team, my family and me), decided I needed a week off chemo to let me body recover a little bit, and then I’ll be swapping to a new chemo/aromatase inhibitor regimen.
Supposedly this new mix is pretty nasty to deal with at the start but settles down once they get the mix right. It’s great to know there are other options as well.
I’ll be enjoying my week off chemo and hoping my body recovers well before my birthday party!
