Living with Scleroderma

this is nothing but a curve ball

Cytoxan #12

on February 26, 2013

I finished my last Cytoxan Infusion 3 weeks ago.  All 12 sessions are finished, yay!

Cytoxan #12

I’m very grateful to the nurse staff at Kaiser in Sunset for making all my chemo sessions throughout the whole year not as terrible.  They have all been nice to me and hubby and did a great job.  I’ll miss them but I’m glad I don’t have to come back.

I survived all the side effects (nausea, vomiting, fatigue and even some hair loss). I absolutely agree with the doctors when they say that chemo affects people differently.  Some people have it worse than others.  I’m glad I was able to communicate with my Rheumatologist my side effects so she was able to give me some relief with lowering my dose and changing up my other medications.

For anyone out there who’s going through cytoxan or any chemotherapy, I want to tell you that I think you are brave and you are commendable for fighting!

I also understand that some just cannot take chemo, but don’t lose hope, there are other options.  Having well trained professionals is always a plus.

Either way, Keep the Faith! Miracles happen everyday! Everyday is a MIRACLE!
