Is much harder than the radiation itself. I am feeling so much more tired than I was during the treatment itself. I guess that makes sense in the aspect that the side effects build up over time and peak at the end. It's taking awhile for me to get back to "normal". Hard to believe that's it's already been a week.
The anti-seizure drugs and anti-swelling drugs are also making things harder. The anti-seizure drug is supposed to mellow me out, while the anti-swelling makes me wake up at least 3 times a night and gets my "analysis" of everything going by 4:30 in the morning. I was up at 3:30 this morning. I'm pretty happy if I can sleep in until 5:00 am. That's a bonus.
I now fully understand why the doctors need me to take time off from any treatments until this gets better. Would only make things worse if I didn't.
I hope that everyone is having a great day. I hear we've got another chinook coming soon. Nice!!
