my boyfriend is having his first scan since chemo next monday and im so scared! he's excited.. me on the other hand im so nervous i feel sick.. i hate waiting! i dont want him to stop chemo if the tumor hasnt shrunk 😞 he's side effects from chemo are getting worse i think, he seems sicker and his nerves are a bit funny.. but he's still fighting strong.

Maddie, I really admire how you are sticking with him.Yes the waiting is awful. If he is on oxalipalitan, he may be having some neuropathy(nerve damage) in his hands and feet. I have had difficulties with this and I found that the best way to ease the pain was with massage. My son used to rub my feet for me. It would often help me through bad nights. Take care, S
