Week 96 chemo complete: Maybe…I’ll go out tomorrow

Week 96 Chemo Complete: Maybe…I’ll go out tomorrow

Significant mental fatigue is one of the side effects of long-term chemo treatment. On a personal level, thinking is compromised. On a social level, conversations become exhausting.

Sometimes it helps me cope, to take a quiet day.

To recap: On Sunday, December 11th, I completed Cycle 24 Week 4. I have Multiple Myeloma and anemia, a rare blood cancer. It is incurable, but treatable. From February to November 2013, I received Velcade chemo through weekly in-hospital injections as an outpatient. Since February 9th 2015, I have been on Pomalyst and dexamethasone chemo treatment (Pom/dex).

Weekly chemo-inspired self-portraits can be viewed in my flickr album.
