I have completed day 1 of my chemotherapy - 13 more to come. I acually feel better than before I started; probably because my bowel was acting in slow motion (boom!boom!) and now is more free flowing.
This treatment consists of a 5 minute injection then 5 tablets twice a day for 2 weeks. The side effects are mainly associated with the gastrointestinal tract, which I won't mention further apart from saying that a computer friend has described it as the rapid downloading some software.
My bruises from the fall in the garden (I mean my garden, not the Garden of Eden) are gradually healing; they are at the less painful but more colorful stage. Still, I have to take regular painkillers.
