I have seen the doctor this morning after the first 3 weeks of the chemo course - 2 weeks of taking tablets and then a week off.
During the time I was taking the pills I felt very tired but in the last week I've felt nearly normal. Touchwood, no other side effects.
The doc was pleased with my progress and told me that the markers in my blood indicated a slight slowdown in growth of the cancer which is what he would expect after just 3 weeks. He also told me that I could relax my diet slightly although to be sensible in the way I do it. He also told me that I must still continue to exercise which means at least a walk round the block each day.
Start the next 2 week session of pill taking tomorrow and back to see the doc in 3 weeks time. Will report again then.
