I had three treatments and after each treament my side-effects seem to worsen. The last time I began to feel very ill in addition to the nausea, vomiting, and fatigue.
I do not think I my body can take another treatment. Anyone else have any experience?

I'm not familiar with your specific chemo routine ( mine was 6 mos. for Hodgkins with 1 mo.radiation afterwards) Yeah, it's rough. But I don't see any alternative outside of treatment. The only thing that helped me with the nausea was getting outdoors, walking, riding a bike, anything that made me move. There's nausea meds as you know, but they didn't help me that much. I hope you hang in there and stay with treatment. I'm told fatigue and mental fog will last a while even after treatment but I can accept that..No choice. Glad spring's coming, that ought to help a lot of people..

Yes I had ICHOP treatments - 12 weeks. I swore - never would I go through any kind of chemo treatment. I ended up with dental problems because of extreme dry mouth and neuropathy in feet. I stubbed my little toe twice this week - my brain said "PAIN - HURT" but my foot didn't feel it.

Merry Christmas to my new cancer family and we are family. Praying next year brings all of us health, peace, and support as we continue on with our journeys.
