Started my second round today.
Feel like S@#$, but the cancer is doing worse than me.
Had to go to the hospital on the 28th (chest pains, shortness of breath). They gave me the full once over. No infection or blood clots. Just some anxiety that got out of hand due to my reduced lung function and side effects of the Drugs/Chemo. The doctor sent me for CT of my Neck and Chest. Came back with only good news. The chest is clear. All my neck nodes are back to normal size. And the node in the upper part of the abdomen is back to normal. Don't know about the lower abdomen and groin yet. The scan did not go that far.
Stressed about the results of my brain CT. No reason to be, as the CT was just to make sure. I have no symptoms, but my Oncologist thinks we should play it safe (my TC jumped from my testicle to my neck in 23 days). I am sure it is clear, but we all know "The waiting is the hardest part"
The Chemo is going ok. Had to shave my head on 25th. The hair was really starting to come out and make a mess in the shower.
