So I’ve almost completed my first cycle of treatment and I’ve survived pretty well. The only side effect I’ve noticed is altered sensation in my fingertips. I’ve been to work for about 8 days out of the twenty one, run my pub quiz and written another chapter of the work-in-progress. My prelimary blood results showed my lymphocytes had dropped from sixty something to twenty something which is regarded as a decent result.
The next cycle of treatment on Tuesday will have the monoclonal antibody as well as the cytotoxics and steroids so the side-effects could be different, but so far I’m doing pretty good. Thought you might want to know.
