I’m so afraid saying that “out loud” will jinx it, but I’m just so darn excited!
I usually feel weird the day after chemo. Last cycle I was up all night the night of chemo. That isn’t how it’s been so far this time. I have been sleeping fine. I don’t feel weird. Brain fog hasn’t set in. I feel, dare I say it, normal.
When I went for my Neulasta shot yesterday, I even told the MA that if it hadn’t been for the drowsiness of the Benadryl the day of chemo, I’d swear the IV wasn’t connected on Monday and I got no drugs at all.
Maybe my body is getting more and more used to it? That would be great, especially if “hell week” isn’t as much he’ll as it has been the previous two cycles. Would be nice to not be out of commission all week!
Again, I totally don’t want to jinx it, but it’s hard not to get excited! I want to feel normal as much as possible and these last couple days have been a blessing!
I have had some constipation and heartburn, which I believe I had last cycle, and are nothing to complain about versus the other side effects I’m usually feeling right about now. Pepto and mints are alleviating some of that. My appetite is totally fine, and my energy level has been great!
So I feel good, and I hope it lasts!
