Week 18 complete: Food cravings while on chemo

Week 18 complete: Food cravings while on chemoFood cravings during chemo

Dexamethasone is as an oral steroid I take every Monday. It adds weight to my body and creates food cravings. I hear these donuts calling my name, saying “Eat me please!”.

Resistance is futile.

On Sunday I completed Cycle 5 Week 2. I felt great all week without any chemo side effects or cancer symptoms. I do find challenges with chemo as can be expected, such as decision making. Chemo can also be lonely, but thankfully I have amazing friends that I spend time with to keep me happy and positive about life.

To recap: 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. From February 9th 2015, I am on Pomalyst and dexamethasone chemo treatment (Pom/dex). On June 1st I began Cycle 5.
