I am down to only being able to drink. I have sustained myself on shakes. Sometimes those are protein shakes but other times, I will confess, to living off of Eggnog milkshakes from McDonald's.
I meet with the doctor today after my treatment. I was down two pounds from last week. My throat is sore! My jaw and gums are also sore! These are side effects the Doctor expected and warned me about. My only concern is that the side effects are permanent and he assured me today that they are not. He believes within two weeks of ending treatment I will feel better.
The Doctor gave me some "magic mouthwash" that will numb my throat so hopefully I can eat. He told me to take it within a half-hour of eating. Funny, the pharmacist told me not to eat within an hour of taking the medication for risk of choking.
My other big news; I do believe my hair is starting to grow back. It feels very fuzzy up there. By NO MEANS am I ready to show anyone my head. But, maybe by my birthday....
