It’s been a while

Finally I’m taking a break from capecitebine, the oral chemo. I was getting used to consuming all the pills. However, it has been leaving me feeling run down - I suddenly get a fit of yawning and my energy levels plummet. My hair has thinned, and my digestion isn’t great.
So there was a scan last week. Quite a challenge to get the contrast in - three different places tried. The results were reasonably positive. The pressure on my spinal cord is reduced, but I knew that anyway as I have been able to manage stairs better and my heels aren’t as delicate. There are other bits and pieces scattered round my body, but generally the chemo has had a positive effect. I could have opted to continue, but felt ready for a break to recharge and not get stressed about medical appointments for a little while.
