My chemo treatment just seemed like a bad bout with the 'flu. By Tuesday, I felt a little weak (and still not able to eat much) but other than that, back to normal. Some of the effects are cumulative, like the fatigue and the effect on the immune system. One of the booklets I was reading was warning not to floss your teeth, because if you make yourself bleed, you risk infection! Seems a bit extreme, considering the health (and aesthetic) effects of not flossing!
