I see this was posted 2 yrs ago, it sounds like part of my journey, for which i'm finding out i'm still on..after lil over a year off chemo/port removal. I had the 3-5 strong chemo meds 12 months every other week-then 4 more months of chemo that wasn't soo strong, my hair was able to grow back, i lost my finger nails twice, bald head, almost lost toenails, the constipation was deathly, i NEVER had to deal with that before. it was all bad for along time; when i was done with those meds i thought "yes i made it" i'm gonna feel better, the problem is i don't feel so great anymore, i'm not giving up no way, but does anyone know if there is such a thing as too much chemo? Regular doc knows nothing. I have a constant headache, fatique nausiouss..i worked through out all this but i have not had a good week for a long time..i'm seriously thinking of changing my profession, pay cut, i think it was meant to be; not the ill feeling part. I don't know?? I'm sad and basically alone......sad cause alone, i'm with God i shouldn't worry right? I have to remind myself.. Love you all Good luck in your appointments..make em do the heart test after chemo MUGA....View Thread
