    Thanks everyone. Yes totally agree with Daniel that it is important to follow the surveillance protocol. If time allows, exercise is another form to combat stress and the aftermath from chemo. At least, it helped me on the finger numbness.

      Yes, exercise even walking is so important during chemo if one can do it. It also helps mentally.
