Re: Problem with Port

All went well, no issues with the chemo infusion. It hurt a lot to get the needle in the port, but I'm just so glad that pain is slowly starting to resolve, so shouldn't be as bad the next time. Not really feeling any effects yet from the chemo, feel normal today.

My cocktail is Taxol/carboplatin. So I'm definitely very worried about things like chronic joint pain or neuropathy which are not uncommon with Taxol. I know I'll lose my hair and have fatigue, etc. I'm using Melatonin which I've heard might both help make chemo work better as well as reduce side effects, and keeping my protein intake high, but other than that, not real sure what else to do.
