The Cure

Some of Kelly's cure and what the various side-effects are:

Capecitabine - nausea, loss of appetite, tiredness, weakness, back/joint/muscle pain,headache, dizziness, trouble sleeping, temporary hair-loss, diarrhea,

Lapatinib - Back pain, diarrhea, dry skin, indigestion, mouth sores, nausea, redness and tingling in hands and feet, tiredness, trouble sleeping(!),severe or persistent cough, tiredness, shortness of breath, yellowing of the eyes or skin, unusual bruising,

Zopiclone - drowsiness, dizziness, dry mouth, headache, irregular heartbeat, changes in vision, slurred speech, loss of memory, incordination, confusion, depression,

Clonazapam - clumsiness, dizziness, slurred speech, blurred vision, diarrhea, increased thirst, trembling and shaking,

Depakote - back pain, blurred vision, diarrhea, drowsiness, nausea, headaches, weight gain, emotional problems

I particularly like "emotional problems"! There's a shocker.

This doesn't even represent the full amount of her medications, or the full list of side-effects and doesn't mention the radiotherapy or the various other intrusive procedures she's been subject to.

It's no exaggeration to say that my wife is a fucking hero!
