Topic: Chemo delays..am I a chemo washout?
Just wondering if most people stay on schedule. I have NEVER kept to the 2 weeks on, one week off cycle. It usually is more of 10 days off. But this time, I will be off 2 weeks. How normal is this?
Does anyone know if such readjustments decrease the effectivness of chemo?
I try to remind myself that I am in this for the long haul. That I want as many treatments as possible, not necessarily on time. I know that if my body needs a break, it needs a break. I dont want to spend another week in the hospital, but sometimes I feel like I am not "fighting" enough when I have to take these breaks. It is like I have failed in some way which makes no sense. Sorry for the whine...it can be served with some nice cheese available on request.
