Hi, Had my first folfox treatment last week. It seemed to be going well up until today.The side effects that I had experienced (so far) had been not overly great. Today though, I woke and felt like that every ounce of energy had been suck out out of my body. I was not a pleasant experience I can tell you. I slept all night (first time in a while) and have had about 6 hours more sleep during during the day. But am still exhausted. Everytime I get up to do something, I need to sit down and rest. Guessing, this chemo is going to knock me about more than what I had hoped. Just hope that it doesn't last for too many days and that my energy returns at least a little. cheers Tim
