Feeling Better After My First Chemotherapy and Neulasta

Do you like my new hairdo?

After Eric cut my long hair.

Well, the next one will be super cool—Sinéad O’Connor style.

It was time to cut my hair after my first chemotherapy.

650 My long hair

I love having a long hair, but it was time to say “good bye”.


650 Cut my long hair

Eric cut my long hair – it was uneven, but no big deal.

I finished my first round of chemotherapy for cancer of Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) Primary non-Hodgkin of Liver, stage IV (cause was Hepatitis C that I got from the blood transfusion result of the car accident in 2001).

After the chemotherapy I had 10 days of serious bone pain from Neulasta shot (to help white blood cell level) side effects, I was alive again.
I still have some side effects from chemotherapy; fingers and toes have nerve and muscle problems such as numbness, tingling, and pain. Kidney pain and feeling fatigues, but almost no bone pain.
I really wanted to be in my garden to plant sunflower seeds so here I was went to outside finally. I am hoping the seed will give the flowers bloom and I can see them from my bedroom window.

Feel so good to be in my garden to plant sunflower seeds.

I am supposed to have six EPOCH + Rituximab chemotherapy treatments, but I did not decide to take all six yet. I am going to take one more for sure on June 19th, 2017 and take a PET/CT scan test to see if Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) Primary non-Hodgkin of Liver got shrunk or not.


Right now, I just want to enjoy my day, plant sunflower seeds, and be with my family again.

    It is worse for the first few days after I leave hospital and then it gradually gets better until my next course of chemotherapy.
