side effects of first cycle

The first cycle is complete. I'm pleased about that because it means there is just one less to deal with. Next week is my off-week. I must still, however, go to the hospital on Thursday so that my blood counts can be checked.

The side effects of the chemotherapy have kicked me around a bit, however, but I am still standing pushing forward. Yesterday after treatment, I experienced an awful throbbing headache and then, again today the same thing: another pounding headache. My concentration was a bit off this morning in class, but I managed. I took 3 Tylenols and then, slept for about 2 hours this afternoon after returning home from class. The headache is gone now, but I don't feel like my usual self.
Constipation continues to be a vexing problem.
