3 cycles out of 12 done, one every two weeks. Every time more side effects prop up and the latest landed me in the ER. Apparently my body is just too beaten down by the major surgery and the chemo onslaught, and decides to randomly SHUT DOWN to try and reboot.

I don't know that I can do this for six months. Have an appointment with my chemo oncologist Friday to discuss dosages/ alternatives, etc. So tired, and so frustrated. I can't be randomly going into shock and passing out, my chibi is already plenty nervous. He actually suggested that maybe he could not go to school and stay home so he could be around if someone needed to call 911. Not right.

So back to the drawing board I guess, and looking at options. Something's got to change...

Had to stop today - couldn't have it because my blood count is just too low. So I'm thinking of stopping altogether for now, at least until the scan in December shows us where we are at. :hug:You know me and my stubborness, m'dear. I'll kick its but yet. :)

There are many alternative health options that can provide supplementive care during chemo treatments to strengthen the body. Find an alternative doctor with a lot of experience and they can help.

Thank you, we are looking into this. My current doctor doesn't want supplements/ alternatives, but now that we are looking into stopping chemo I am researching alternative therapies. At the very least looking to strengthen the immune system and combat some of its effects. <3

Ugh I know chemo can be rough! My aunt is going through her first treatments right now and she is very fatigued. Your little one is so sweet! I hope that you can find an option that works for you and your family. Stay strong, hon!

Angela, my love to your aunt. I hope that she sails through her cycles! For me, the effects just kept adding on and on and... cost/benefit analysis, we will be stopping it early...
