Side-effects, less is more!

Let's see how things are.

Fatigue, check, even as a small preview of things to come. Yesterday was a good day, lower pulse and reasonable blood pressure (67; 99/54), so no nap. Today's data are quite similar, so things are good.

Tingling in the fingers, check, but no return of this delicate sensation.

Diarrhoea, check! 60% and more get it, I'm in it. Thankfully i had some Imodium at home, and one pill did the trick, as it was not a severe case (yet).

Not really looking forward to the rest of the "classical" effects, but there are some rarer ones too:

Occasional side effects
Between 1 and 10 in every 100 people have one or more of these effects.

Sensitivity to the sun – cover up and stay in the shade while you are having this treatment. Use a high factor sun cream on any exposed skin
Brown marking on the skin following the line of the vein where the chemotherapy has been injected
Hair thinning
Brittle, chipped and ridged nails
Gritty eyes, blurred vision or watery eyes from increased production of tears
