Anyway, part of the irritating info from the nurses involved possible side effects. I did pay attention but have to admit I was thinking 'yeah, yeah, whatevs' as warnings were given, after all this chemo is known to have less side-effects than many others.
It wasn't until a couple of days later when I stood simultaneously sweating and shaking in the supermarket that I wondered if the ice-cold/clammy combo was entirely normal. There followed two days of grotty bed-bound flu-like symptoms including an iffy temperature, a pounding head and everything aching.
Fingers crossed that the cancer cells are feeling even worse than I did.
