Yesterday went smoothly. I didn't have any reactions to the medication and managed to get in a little Benedryl-induced nap which made the afternoon a bit less hazy. I had a friend hanging out with me for most of the afternoon so it was nice that my head was a bit clearer and I could actually follow the conversation.
The CT scan was done after cycle #5 so hopefully things have improved even more. The plan is to have a repeat of the PET scan a month after my last chemo to make sure it's all gone, sometime the end of May/beginning of June.
The other news from yesterday is that the doctor decided to stop one of the R-CHOP drugs due to the numbness in my hands. The numbness has been getting increasingly worse since the start of chemotherapy and apparently it can be irreversible. The pharmacist thought maybe they would just reduce the dose but since I've been responding well, the doctor decided to stop it all together instead of taking the risk of increasing the damage. I'm happy with the decision as the numbness is terrible and I'd rather it not get worse.
