    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Besides chemo infusions, I also take meds for nausea and pain, and a shot 3x weekly for low white blood cell count. The main negative effect on daily life is fatigue.

    Low blood pressure (hypotension)

    Side Effects

    I am just completing my third of six cycles of chemo. I get that it's killing not only the cancer cells but also the good cells which have to be at a certain level for me to be able to even get the chemo. So some days i can't even get my infusion for a couple days until i get the nupregen (sp?) shot to raise the white count. The same goes for the red blood cell count. I am finding myself becoming more and more upset when this happens because how will I ever get well if i'm not receiving the chemo my body needs to heal? Another side effect that is a bit scary is that my usually normal blood pressure is very low (90/something) causing light headedness and dizziness and the realization that i shouldn't be driving. This is quite discouraging and I appreciate being able to share those feelings.
