Sorry to hear Round 2 was so difficult, but that doesn't mean Round 3 will necessarily be worse. For Austin, Round 1 was the most difficult and Round 2 was much easier.( Round 3 was delayed a week due to low WBC, but not because he didn't feel well.) Round 3 went smoothly, with one mouth sore and an infected toe, both due to low WBC and showing up after finishing his final Bleo, but quickly cleared up with anti-biotics. He had more fatigue in Round 3, but no nausea or indigestion. He was religious about Kytril and Ranitadine though, which helped immensely. I have never been one to dole out medication unless absolutely necessary, however, with the advice from others, I realized that this was a situation when taking the max allowed of multiple meds, was in fact a good thing. I also think by Round 3 you know your'e on the home stretch and you can see an end in sight.
Hang in there! Good Luck next week!
