Life is like a boxing match, defeat is declared not when you fall ..... But when you refuse to stand up again ....... So, I get knocked down but I get up again. x
Thank you that will b good. I have never had it b4 it came first in the foot that ended up having gout then I got on the other foot Dr told me to roll my foot on a can which was quite beneficial. I was applying ibuprofen gel and also taking the tablet. Things have improved thank goodness I have a small padded thing that fits in the arch of my foot. I will send u a friends request im also a Leo :))
Hi I looked like I had been under a sun lamp the day after my first taxol - after that I was given piriton to take for a couple of days after treatment, I’ve just had number 4 and didn’t need the extra piriton - must be getting used to it. Eileen xxx
Hi :) I'm on no 15 chemo on thurs but still get red face for about 2-3days I get piriton as well but through my canular.
Good luck with your treatment
