As you go thru the chemo treatments, do the side effects progressively get worse?

    Yes everyone is different. Mine got worse each treatment. Ive met people that really did well. My onco said i was an exception, i had every side effect.

    Terri, Just as Michele said, we are all different. I didn't have cumulative effects I had a week where I felt like I had the flu and then got better. It depends on how your body handles the chemo and how it recovers from each treatment. Take care Sharon

    Everyone is different, but I had less energy and symptoms lasted a little longer after each treatment. Take care and do things that bring you joy each day.

    I had my second treatment last Thursday. It definitely hit me harder than the first. A combination of Fatigue, Hair Loss, Mild Nausea and some loss of taste. My throat hurt me more also.

      I''m on my 3rd treatment & I have to say it probably is a little bit harder this time around, but remember God, water, and walk. God bless

    Mine has been a little worse in away and better also because I knew what to be prepared for . I am. A lot more worn out this time . But not sure I can count myself because I have a 32 month old and a 16 month old . All moms get tired right ?

    For me the side effects did become progressively worst with treatment but things did return to normal afterwards. I am going through chemo again and I'm noticing the same pattern.

    Thanks everyone for the responses. I have had 2 chemo treatments and am scheduled to receive one the week before Thanksgiving and then in December, receive one right before Christmas. I ususally do both holidays for family and friends but might have to bow out this year. For the 2 treatments, I have felt very tired by the 3rd day and then for almost 2 weeks after the treatment, nothing tastes good. I wouldn't know if what I was cooking tasted good or not anyways! It's very disappointing though because I love the rackus at the house for the holidays.
