It dawned on me today that I only have 5 more weeks of chemotherapy, and I started at 20 weeks. I am 75% through!! Woo hoo! It hasn't been near as bad as I had imagined it to be. I was very stressed about it beforehand, but it hasn't been that bad. I've only missed one day of work due to sickness. I get my treatments on Thursdays, and I have a very difficult time sleeping Thursday nights, because the steroid kicks in. I still feel pretty good on Fridays. Usually Friday evenings is when the chemo crash hits. Most weekends I hardly leave the house. I take a shower and put on a different pair of jammies.
However, this weekend I intend to walk at least 2 miles each day and I have a new strength training program to do. I would like to do at least one, and take a rest day on the other day. We will see. I'm hoping that will help offset the fatigue.
My surgery is set for February 10, so I want to be in the best shape possible going into surgery. My research has taught me that weight bearing exercises will make recovery easier. So, weight training I shall do!
I'm just very excited that I am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel, and I am praying that it isn't a train! :)
