I just wrapped up 9 weeks(21 sessions) of BEP chemo for testicular cancer. For the most part, my side effects were minimal. Hand/foot neuropathy, ringing in the ears, low white counts/platelet counts are about all I've dealt with, aside from fatigue.

How long did it take you to feel normal again? I'm still very tired, and haven't had an infusion for 11 days now.

Glad that you are not having any serious side effects. Hope you get better soon. Stay strong my friend.

why did you need chemo? could they just take out the bad nut? serious question.

My father is still feeling the weakness 2.5 years later. It took about 6 months before he could mow his yard without a break. On a positive he's out hunting in a snow storm right now and I pussed out. He had half his jaw removed because the tumor was in his sinus cavity. You might recover quicker. Keep moving and trying more each day. Good luck OP. I've seen what it does and you've made it past the worst part.

They took the bad nut, and found that the cancer had spread into 4 lymph nodes. I find out Tuesday if I need more chemo, a surgery to take out the now-dead lymph nodes, or just go on surveillance(blood tests and a PET scan every 6 months)
