I can’t believe it’s already been a month since I finished chemo! 😮So far, so good! After being home for 2 weeks, I started nannying again for the same family I was working for before I got diagnosed. I am so thankful for them and how much they have supported and loved me through this journey. They said I could come back as soon as I felt up to it-I decided two weeks was long enough lol. It has been great to wake up and have something to do every day. I love taking care of these kiddos so much and it’s actually helped me get my energy and strength back too.
As far as side effects, I haven’t really had any major ones. I was pretty fatigued a couple days the first few weeks, I’ve had some headaches and some body soreness/ stiffness. I’ve also had some tightness and nerve pain in my back that I think might be an effect of all the spinal chemo but who knows. After being home two weeks I felt really crappy so I ended up getting a blood transfusion on a Saturday and since then I’ve been good. I lost nearly all of my eyebrows towards the end and all of my bottom lashes. Some of the top ones stayed lol. So I’m 4 weeks out and my hair still hasn’t really started growing back. People online say that after about a month it will start so I’m hoping it will start soon! With it getting cold I went out and bought a ton of beanies to start wearing 😊 Kinda excited about that!
I go back for my first PET scan post chemo on November 1st and then meet with the doctor. So excited to see Dr. Pawloski again! ❤️ Mr. Hamilton who got my same chemo, just did his first scan and it came back clear! So hoping mine will be too!
That’s about all that’s going on for now! Enjoying the fall weather and my favorite time of year 🎃🍁🍂 I also started going to the gym again this week! Bald head and all ☺️
