G-Chop 1/8/14 starting for 6 cycles, headache, jaw pain, hair loss
R-CHOP; chemo as listed above plus Rituximab and Prednisone. June x1; July x2; August x1; September x2. 6 total rounds of R-CHOP. Also, had an injection of Neulasta the day after each chemo round that helped me build-up white blood cell counts and it worked well. Fortunately, they gave me a 'cocktail' of Benadryl etc, so I never got sick - thank God. Took nausea pills. Loss of appetite for a day as everything tasted like you ate old pennies or nickels. The first two times that I had the Neulasta white blood cell shots I had bone pain within a week that lasted only a day or two and went away. Chemo also gave me an irriegular heartbeat, so a beta-blocker fixed that. Chemo 1-4 weren't all that bad, just long. Chemo 5 & 6 felt like I was in a fight in the middle of the night - but I was able to recover quickly. The Prednisone pills made me nasty, which I usually am not.
RCHOPx6 started on 2/21/14 Some nausa and loss of appetite shortly after infusion, Some numbness in fingers after 4th infusion. Taste buds don't work for a few days after infusion
I have had 6 months of chemo, consisting of Rutuxin and Bendamustin or Treanda. Found that I was deathly allergic to the Rutuxin, and fought that drug all the way through the chemo infusions.
