Sandy - it will get better. Talk to your oncologist about the doseage, may be adjustable (dont know) - it will get easier, and you will have some idea of what to expect. It scrambles your head a bit, so logical, sensible thinking is hard at times. (ie, drink lots of water next time).....remember remember... Andrew
