I’m five weeks out of chemo and my hair is slowly coming back in. For the past three weeks my Javiee has called me his little Cocoliso.
That’s a picture of Cocoliso. He says I now have to much hair to be called Cocoliso.
Here’s a picture of my hair! Not the long blonde mane that I’m used to but it’s a start!
My last post was on the horrible hot flashes that the Tamoxifen was causing. I have to say it has gotten so much better! I’ve been taking it for four weeks now. The first two weeks were horrible! I guess my body has adjusted to it well. I’m only having a couple of hot flashes a day now. So much easier to deal with! It’s still scary for me to think that I’m only battling this cancer with a tiny pill. After so many rounds of chemo this pill seems like nothing! I go back to my oncologist this Friday for blood work. Then I’ll know how well it’s working. Fingers crossed!
The leg cramps that came with Taxol are still really bad. I’m taking pain meds daily to deal with them. Good news is they work and I am enjoying my days! I can’t say that life is back to normal. I can say I’m beginning to find my “new” normal and I’m thankful for everyday that I have!
