    Hi I am also on my 3rd day but I am feeling ok just a little tired. I find that eating just a little bit a few times a day even if u don't feel like it helps. Drink as much as u can and rest when u can. Good luck : )

    So sorry, it is common but just keep thinking it is the chemotherapy going after cancer. It is an army working on your side and its a battle. Are you nauseated or is it a feeling of weakness like having the flu? If it is nausea, contact your oncologist's office, they have great drugs for that. If it is the feeling of weakness, it passes within a few days. You just have to take care of yourself, rest, drink lots of fluids, and you may have to spend some quality time on your couch. So sorry for this side effect, we all know what you are going through. Hang in there! Take care, Sharon

    Please remember you are investing in the future. You want to see your grandchildren, be in the family photos. When chemo gets tough hang to your faith and think of the future you will be a part of. It will get you through. That is what I used to get through 6 rounds of chemo and 35 radiation treatments. All of this and great doctors and nurses helping with their wisdom and ability will get you through a really tough thing. You also have a wonderful support network of sisters that are with you.

    I'm feeling pretty weak today, but not sick. I think my main issue is having a cold on top of it all. I didn't sleep well last night and I know I'm not drinking enough. I think I will be on the couch most of the day too. What are the ages of your kids? Mine are 9&6. Take care, Bonnie

      How are you feeling today, Brandi? I feel much the same. Very tired like the flu. Also don't feel like eating or drinking. I get burpy which makes me think I could get nauseous.

      I get burpy too but it makes me feel better. I threw up twice yesterday. I'm much better today than yesterday but my teeth ate aching. When i'm sitting, I want to be up and when I'm up, I want to be sitting. Frustrating. I've kept food down today...

When i'm sitting, I want to be up and when I'm up, I want to be sitting. Frustrating. I've kept food down today so that's good. My next treatment is the 23rd as well. 3 more AC's and 4 taxol. I've heard taxol is easier though. Fingers crossed. July seems so far away. How are you holding up today?

      Sounds like we have the exact treatment. July does seem far away. But then I have radiation to look forward to. And my FMLA is up in May so looks like I will be working part time. In May, I will change chemo days to Thursday. I am mostly just...

      Sounds like we have the exact treatment. July does seem far away. But then I have radiation to look forward to. And my FMLA is up in May so looks like I will be working part time. In May, I will change chemo days to Thursday. I am mostly just tired with no energy. Not really sleepy, just no energy. Glad to see you are doing better.

      I'm sad you'll be changing to Thursdays. It was somewhat comforting to know someone that was going through the same thing on the same day. ;@) I got to spend some time with the kids tonight and even went for a short walk. Maybe throwing up got some of it out of my system yesterday. ;@) Hope you're feeling better soon. We've got to get in some good days before doing it again!

      Oops. I can tell my mouth is changing too. A couple little sores. :@( Otherwise, I can't complain. I'm looking forward to feeling 'normal' for the next few days before the 23rd. When do you switch to Thursdays?!?

      May 10. I'm still fatigued. I haven't had any mouth issues yet but I swear I bite my cheeks and tongue more. It's just a matter of time.
