Doyle’s chemo journey, Day 4 — The chemo is done, now we wait
Well, that's it. My fourth and final chemotherapy session, for now at least.
As the transfusion was coming to an end, the waiting game officially began. In three weeks, I will find out if this chemotherapy treatment worked, or if it's back to the drawing board.
The side effects have been increasing in recent days. Along with nausea and hair loss, I'm now getting random bouts of dizziness, as well as some trembling in my hands. I can only hope these side effects subside in the coming weeks.
My thanks again to the wonderful people at Fox Chase Cancer Center, as well as the many listeners who have reached out and sent kind words my way. I could not do this without each and every one of you.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Bill Doyle is one of the strongest human beings I've ever known. This man has shown up to work every day, no matter how horrible he is feeling from this process, with not only a positive attitude, but also a sense of humor about the whole thing. A true symbol of fortitude that we can all learn from. We are with you every step of the way.
