You have only heard about what she has posted here. You should also hear what she has to say to me! It has not been at all pleasant for her.

That combines with the trouble I have breathing because of my injury makes for a bad situation that most people going through chemo don't experience in quite the same way, luckily. It's cumulative, because I can't get enough exercise to even maintain the condition I'm in. I'm really hoping to reverse that once I finish chemo.

Another issue I'm having is nerve damage, that's common with Taxol. Unfortunately it's cumulative, too, and often doesn't go away. It's in my hands, worse in my right. Numb abd tingling, sometimes hard to use the hand. I'm REALLY hoping that'll get better after chemo. If not, I may go crazier than I already am.

Plus enough other crap going on that makes me think I'd rather get shot again than have to go through chemo again. Just counting the days until it's over. Then I'm thinking about going to Arizona to see some family and friends, with a couple stops on the way there. OK, I know Knoxville and Mobile aren't exactly on the way, but who cares.......
You had best not forget to visit me also. What will you be doing in Mobile?

I do hope the nerve damage subsides after you have finished this regimen. You are already crazy enough.:tongueout

A Lady at work was just diagnosed this week. 30+ year smoker,
cancer in lungs, lymph nodes, liver,.......
Sadly, no treatment for Her, they told Her 5-6 mos max.

Wish I was a bit closer,.........I need a beer.
feewrenchbndr I am so sorry to hear about your coworker. She will be in my prayers.

I have no problems with her comment. After all she did not agree to that round to her chest. I would not have agreed to it either.

You're welcome to stop by here, too. We have an airport and everything.
You have an airport there? Are you sure?
On here I'm an *** hole.
In real life I'm an *** hole with a gun. :supergrin:
