Another week down and I'm finished with Chemo with 12 more radiation treatments to go. All is going well and my radiation doctor says my tumor continues to shrink, isn't that wonderful!
I'm grateful that the chemo is over, the first 2 rounds were very rough, the last two not so bad. But the side affects were interesting. In addition to losing my hair, I still have some and look not unlike Golem from Lord of the Rings, it affected my mouth (all soft tissue everywhere actually) and my hearing. I've always had one good ear and one not so good one (we call it the Anderson ear in our family). But the chemo affected my good ear and I have trouble hearing now. With people I'm getting better, but unless the tv is blasting I have a real problem hearing. Hoping that this clears up now that chemo is over.
The radiation is giving me acid reflux and painful swallowing, but I have medication to help with that.
All in all not too bad.
I'm enclosing a picture of my battery-operated Iris and me in my wig. I have elected not to go bald. My scalp is ugly and I prefer a wig.
Hope you all have a great week end.
