Here's a quick run-down of this chemo experience:
- No nausea
- Little dizziness
- Much motion sickness
- Some drowziness
- Loss of feeling in left-hand index finger and thumb (eep.)
That's about it for chemo-related symptoms.
The cancer itch is still here. I scratched my ankle too hard the other night and broke the skin. That's no good.
Also, all that bacon I was eating last week is catching up with me. Hoo boy. Right to the thighs.
Actually, I was going to leave it at that, but wait, there's more! I weighed myself yesterday, and I was roughly 175lbs. (okay, 180, but I was wearing my boots and my big-ass leather coat). That puts me at 10 pounds heavier than when I started chemotherapy. I guess that's good. However, body image is not doing so well. I'm glad I don't look quite as emaciated anymore, but between feeling sluggish and useless, the stupid new haircut, and the weight-gain, I'm kinda really really looking forward to the spring and health and a gym membership.
