PROJECT: 05-DJC:174.9

This is Deirdre's Breast Cancer Diary. I try to update this blog at least every evening. This is an easy way for me to keep a journal of the experience, and at the same time, I can keep my friends and family up-to-date on what is going on. I find it is not so bad to have cancer, but it is awfully depressing to talk about it. I hope you laugh as you read along. You can find the beginning in February the archives. Thanks again for reading :o)

WARNING: The following post contains BM descriptions

I have been reading up on the possible side effects of chemotherapy as they pertain to my digestive system. I guess what has been happening to me is not all that uncommon or unexpected (my bowel movements have been different...they are much much more frequent and a bit loose). I feel as though I should be close to the toilet almost all day long - because of the frequency of evacuation. (I really must be full of ___ ). I really hadn't expected to feel affected by chemo for this long...maybe only for the first few days. It turns out the chemo started kicking my butt (pardon the expression) on day 4 and onward. Previous to day 4, I experienced the vomiting - or the sensation that I was going to vomit. So basically - I have been in the bathroom for a week and a half. Pretty Crappy! (or not...)
