I had my first injection of the current round of chemotherapy, paclitaxel, on Monday. I also received steroids, ativan and benadryl to assist in the absorption of the chemo. Luckily I only had one injection of steroids, so hopefully some of the less pleasant side effects of the platinum based chemo that I received last fall and winter won't recur.
The current main side effect appears to be severe fatigue. I can get up, and do some work,e.g. participate in settlement conferences by phone or write memos, but then I hit the wall and have to rest. I am fortunate to be connected to my office via computer, so I can email completed briefs or memos.
But posting may be light for a while as I adjust to this new regimen and I may not be as quick with my email responses. Your care and continuing concern, however, have been most appreciated.
