Feeling the Effects

Day 2 of the ATRA pills.

The headache arrived, right on schedule.

What's taken me completely by surprise is the nausea.

During my prior ATRA courses, I'd been receiving the heavy anthracycline chemo. I'd assumed the nausea then was from the anthracyclines. Apparently, the ATRA affects me that way too.

I called the cancer center to ask if other patients experience extreme nausea with ATRA too. Yes, some do.

13 days and then seven more rounds to go. Sigh.
