#7 Days 2-3

Thursday and Friday have turned out about as expected… I rested at home Thursday and did a little work, and was able to go to work for a full day on Friday. Some nausea, but not quite as bad as last time. The altered food taste is worse than the last couple times though, so I have no appetite and have to force myself to eat to get some nutrition. I had an Ensure shake for lunch today which keeps me going.

A lot of people have recently been asking me if the chemo is working, and if I’m getting better. I’m kind of an odd case, since they found the cancer before I had any symptoms, so there isn’t any way for me to feel whether it’s getting better. The only way to monitor the cancer is via PET scans. I had one just before starting chemo, and I won’t be having another one until after chemo is done. The first one didn’t show much activity, so my oncologist expects that when we do a scan after chemo, it should show nothing (which is a good thing). Then I just have periodic scans once or twice a year for several years to make sure it doesn’t come back.
