I think it depends alot on the type of chemo your dr.'s have planned, My first chemo was Gemzar and it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it might be. I know others may have a different experience. I was even worried about being able to drive home from the first treatment, but it was never a problem throughout the 2 3mo. cycles of Gemzar. I usually had my infusions on Fridays and felt fine all weekend, sometimes I felt a little sick on Monday or Tuesdays and as we got toward the end of the 3 month cycle I did feel tired most of the time but never enough that it caused me to miss work. I did work full-time during all of the chemo and radiation treatments. My way of looking at things is that I will do everything possible to fight this cancer and live my life how I want, not how the cancer wants me to live. I'm in charge of this cancer, it's not in charge of me.
