I just finished up my last dose of Capecitabine (pronounced Cape Sit-a-bean, a place located half way between Cape Cod and Cape Anne), the low dose chemotherapy I’ve been taking for the past two weeks. I’ve been riding high waves of feeling good followed by wipe out (sharp abdominal pain and extreme fatigue). The docs say its all normal results from zapping me with the concentrated proton radiation last week. I am lucky that so far I’ve had no nausea from the chemo, only a lack of appetite. On the good side, yesterday and today I swam 1/2 mile on the smooth surface of the Manchester Athletic Club pool. I used my tether to avoid the turns, creating my own “endless pool”. I got lots of stares from the New England blue bloods.
