Day 6 after chemo.

First week after chemo has been pretty uneventful. I've settled down a bit. I'm still pretty fatigued, but I can handle most day-to-day activities. I just need to remember to rest and not try to do too much. There is still some leg pain, but it's under control. Mom and Dad have helped by giving me massages. There haven't been any signs of neuropathy in my hands or feet. My appetite comes and goes, but I'm eating on a regular schedule. I never had any nausea or vomiting! Unfortunately, I am noticing that my scalp is hurting a bit, so my hair will probably be going away soon. Boo.

I did have a brief scare with my port today. I had a sudden pain and thought it had moved. What actually happened was I somehow pulled the scar tissue. The pain went away.

I think I won't have to do a daily update now that I have a pretty good idea how things are going to go.
