    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I am only on day 4 of first chemotherapy Round. Minimal nausea or diarrhea thanks to pre-medications. But back pain and lower stomach cramps are debilitating at times. I just wanted to see if I could connect with others that have been here to get some help getting through this. I am used to feeling better after a few days and am just beginning to realize, this is vastly different.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree
