  1. #1 Pain
    #2 Fatigue
    It’s been 4+ years and still dealing everyday

    1. 🫂🫂🫂🫂 I’m post 5 years I just turned 5. I truly understand I deal with the same thing. You know what I find frustrating; when I’m dealing with the symptoms of fatigue or pain and someone says how long are you post treatment? Or your not in active treatment any more! that was soo long ago. I’m like I still deal with the effects 🥺😩🙄🙈😩

    2. it’s been 2 years for me. Can you tell me if you received RCHOP

  2. For me it was significant bowel blockages ( requiring 10 days of hospitalization ) combined with low white blood count due to chemo - Ten months later I still have numb toes, some fatigue along with some chemo brain - all said I am in remission, still here and have met some really nice folks on blood-cancer.com 😀 Dennis(Blood-Cancer.com TEAM)

  3. Probably the mouth sores were the worst thing when the chemo first started. The high steroid dosage made my mouth flora go into overdrive and it was painful for a week or so. The mouthwash didn't do a thing so I eventually had to get pills, and that took another three days or so. Man it was awful. Keep on keepin' on, DPM

    1. I am dealing with this again thank hid the doctor prescribed me some numbing medicine for my mouth and it works lidocaine oral medicine

    2. I did a salt water mouth washes 2 or 3 times a day - it appeared to help things heal

  4. The pain, fatigue and nausea along with the mouth sores are rough for me I’m battling my cancer again for the second time I have multiple myeloma and it gets real when you’re dealing with the side effects
