The first round went very well. No nausea, lots of energy, no change in appetite- it made a BIG difference being on a lower dose for fewer days. I saw my UVA doc yesterday and he was very pleased. He said my blood counts were great- only two areas where they were .5 below normal which was great. He said the rest of the chemo should go the same way the first month went so I'm very glad. I can absolutely do this. I feel great and am very optimistic. I start day two of round two today. Needless to say, I'm hydrating like a mofo!
