More "interesting" Taxotere side-effects

No, this is not the latest in pedicures. With the chemo drug I’m on, your nails can turn black and possibly fall off. Mine haven’t discolored, but have developed weird ridges and the toenails are definitely painful and feel like they are lifting from the nail bed. The surgical tape helps to make them feel more secure and less vulnerable.

Yesterday was the last of my medical appointments until after Christmas. Yahoo! I went to a physiotherapist to see if she could help with the neuropathy in my hands and then had a CT scan of my lungs last evening. It will be nice to take a good long break from all of this over the holidays. My next treatment is on December 31st, New Year ’s eve.
