Two questions about after-chemo days
First, how many days did it take for you to begin to perk up and feel "good" after a round of chemo? I'm on day 7; chemo infusion was Monday 4/24, and infusion pump was removed Wednesday 4/26. I felt better yesterday than I do today, and I'm mystified by that. I know everyone is different, but I'd be interested to know how long it took you to begin to feel better.
Second, I have hiccups. They developed Tuesday or Wednesday. They're not constant. They show up when I swallow, typically; I have 2, 3, 4 strong ones in a row, and then they stop. A nurse suggested the steroids might have caused them, but I don't remember hiccups the last time I had chemo (2007), and I had steroids then too. I'll mention them to the MD tomorrow, but I'm curious what your experience has been on this.
