Hi to all, I'm a single mum 44 with 3 daughters 20, 19 and 16, just started my first of 6 cycles of RChop , I've had a headache for 3 days , I don't know if it's the chemo or that fact I've given smoking away to help my recovery and prevent infections. I work in education as a School service officer in a special needs classroom, I've only been off work 2 weeks and I'm missing them already. I'm so angry I just want everything to go back to normal , it frustrates me relying on others . I hate it when people make a fuss then I hate it when people act like there is nothing wrong please tell me this is normal. My heomotologist seems pretty positive of the outcome and so do my girls, I try to be but there's always that little negative what if? That pops up into my head that I shut down as quick as it does..how do you stay positve all the time? Is there anyone here that has had R-chop and can give me some insight of what to expect....not sure I can deal with the long lasting headache ..nauseous wasn't too bad, steroids make me hungry which is good and my bones ache occasionally...does it get worse after each session?
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
