Attitude is huge! Nutrition is also big, as you well know. It seems odd, yet it seems as if you the patient are encouraging all of us even more than we are encouraging you. I am honored to have an online friend such as you to talk with. (though we dont talk all that much! )
There are so many unfinished arguments in life and so many people whom we are blessed to meet that we have not yet met.
Hi Crashfrog, thanks (and thanks to everyone else too)
I think this is from the author's personal experience.
Yes, he's had several very direct cartoons on cancer that imply this.
As far as this goes, I've had my port put in, a small subcutanous device that makes hooking up the IV much simpler and less invasive, plus safer (considering that many of these drugs can be toxic to skin).
I had my first round last Tuesday. Wednesday was sort of okay, although I was tired. TFS and today I have been plagued with semi-nausea and some aches in the area of my kidneys (they could be under strain if a lot of cells are dying, so it's a mixed message).
The next treatment is next Tuesday, and I will take the opportunity to see about pain medication and anti-nausea pills.
