Thank you Alicia!
I believe also that attitude, hope, and prayer makes a big difference.

I met with my naturopath and she was happy how the first chemo went overall.

I did have some nausea 2-3 days post chemo but I used marijuana to help over come it. Marijuana is legal in PA for certain medical conditions. I did have some joint and muscle ache as well.

I had acupuncture on what turned out to be my worse day. I think the acupuncturist tried to do too much and the treatment wasn’t as effective.

I did not have any neuropathy and I’m so thankful for that!

I do have to gain some weight back before my next chemo in 2 weeks but my appetite and tastes haven’t changed so that’s positive.

Now, I have to start thinking about radiation treatments too. I’m not sure how I can protect myself from those side effects.
