    hair loss

    Side Effects

    In addition to hair loss I also had a change in taste. Very few things tasted good or were even palatable

    Went on a trip to Hawaii with wife and her bro and wife

    What relief to be able to eat everything and have it taste normal. Trememdous load off knowing chemo was over

    Home care

    Other Care

    My wife is a retired nurse and was greatly responsible for the ease of my recovery. I also had mentoring from another man who had the same type of cancer. His has come back and he actually died today. Bit of a downer.
