That's great Kate! I still Haven't drove yet, but I'm sure I will when I feel ready. It's sounds reassuring you are having a better 3rd session than the first two. You keep smiling too.x

Hi both,
Great that you are both showing positive improvements, this mirrors my own experience. After round 6 I can say that I feel better than I have since February when this all kicked off. I am even able to eat a bit of meat again and my need for CREON has diminished, I am now only on 40,000 for a meal, down from 100,000. All bloating and constipation has gone. I would agree with you Kate, but also keep your meal options really simple the week following chemo. Nice sloppy foods, and limit fat & diary as much as possible.
