    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I finished my first round of chemotherapy 10-10-11, I was getting IV/IP, intravenous and intraparential. I was receiving Taxol and Cysplatin, I handled the Taxol treatments pretty easily, however the Cysplatin really made me sick for about a week afterwards. Seriously dehydrated, constipated and just miserable for the remainder of the week. BUT I am done with it, I look back now at how I was feeling while going through the treatments and it's just amazing that I feel as well as I do.

    Easy to Do: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
