My Hodgkin's Lymphoma

My Cancer Journey

Archive for the tag “Side Effects”


So I’m going to jump ahead just a bit. I had my first treatment on Thursday and even though the education nurse told us all about the side effects, I guess I wasn’t expecting them to hit almost immediately. 

I wasn’t shocked by the nausea, I mean my body was pumped full of chemicals for 4 hours, but holy hell my tongue is on fire. It’s almost like a drank a cup of super hot tea and burned my taste buds. Thankfully, I ate a peanut butter sandwich and that seemed to really help. I’ll be remembering this trick. 

It also seems like the whole Paleo thing will be out the window as I feel lucky to eat. Thanks for listening to me whine!
