I’m feeling great. Seriously. Completely normal — aside from the soreness of having a foreign object lodged in my chest (a.k.a. the port). Even that is not too bad.
I really felt 100 percent by Day 7, which was last Thursday. I’m on schedule to go in for chemo at 9 a.m. this Thursday morning.
Today I am seeing a lot of hair loss begin to happen. My scalp was really sore yesterday — like when your ponytail is too tight.
This morning I had a small pile of hair collected after straightening it. Later this morning, I ran my hand through my hair and came out with a decent handful.
I’m currently scheduled to shave my head a week from today. I’d do it earlier, but I’m worried that I’ll feel pretty cruddy over the weekend. At the same time, I’m a bit worried about how bad this shedding could get in the next seven days.
Stay tuned for an update on Chemo Round 2.
