      Buttercup... My oncologist gave me a sheet of all the possible side effects to expect. It was very detailed and helpful. He also gave me medications to take prior to infusions and after. Sometimes he'd give me benedryl during the infusion... I'd at least call and ask for their input.

      oops.... I had two years of chemo, never threw up, etc. However My thick hair came back in way too thin to wear alone, So.... I bought another few wigs... My fingernails haven't strengthened they just break... accrylic nails look good. My fingers are still a slight bit numb... My feet.. well neuropathy has them numb, a tad painful at times, and I do have balance problems, but I do what I want... Danced at my grandson's wedding and held my great granddaughter and great grandson in my arms. In JANUARY 2006 I was diagnosed with Stage IV ovarian cancer... the surgery, and they changed me to Stage IIIC... and my first PET CT Scan showed me Cancer Free. I had another just two weeks ago and I'm Still Cancer Free. Praise God!!!!
