      It's been so many years since I was finishing chemo and radiation that it's hard to remember the days right after it was over. But I do remember that just as soon as I stopped treatment, each week things go better. And sometimes I would be doing something and all of a sudden realize that I was doing something that I hadn't been able to do. I also remember having to take naps for even a couple of months after it was over. Each of us is different in how we take treatment and how we recover.

      Just because chemo ‘is done’ your body is still working hard dealing with the effects of it. My rad oncologist told me it could be weeks to a year to bounce back after a 30 day course WITHOUT ANYTHING ELSE. It can take as long to get your feet back under you as your treatment took or longer. Celebrate the little things step at a time getting better. Take that nap if you need it. Hugs!

      I am still in it and it's creeping up on me worse and worse. There are days that I cannot make it through the whole day either. I'm hoping that it doesn't get any worse.

      I have had tinninitis for years. I tend to tune it out most of the time. Sometimes, it is company. I am certain it adversely affects my hearing. I did have carboplatin as treatment, but i think i had tinninitis prior to cancer (can't remember for sure).

      What chemo are you on? If you're still in treatment, mention this to your doctor. It can become permanent.
