      Hang in there Jose!
      I couldn't sleep either when I was in the onco ward, so I asked for a pill. Just a mild one that made me fall asleep...
      I really think that it made a huge difference that I got a good nights sleep. In that way I managed to cope pretty well with the chemo.
      When well rested, you fell so much better (a little longer... )

      It's not a walk in th park, but you will get through it!
      And because you joined this forum, you are not alone with you problem anymore.

      Best wishes

        Jose, Chris couldn't sleep either during chemo, and a mild sleeping pill really helped him during chemo weeks and then on his off weeks he was fine without it...hang in there....keep us posted...Mary Ellen

          hey guys, got home today, so far it's not too bad, i feel kind of weak, and for some reason maybe short of breath. Doc told me today to eat candy, they did some extra lab work because she didnt like the numbers or something in regard to my liver. I will be back in the hospital on monday for some more bloodwork, let me tell ya'll im tired..... i havent been sleeping good at all hopefully today i can sleep well in my own bed. Anywho, i'll keep ya'll posted

            Hi Jose.
            So far, so good.
            Tiredness is a sure thing. The single most widespread sideeffect of chemo. You will be tired for some time (several months), but it will pass. The lung issue is maybe due to the bleomycin and is one of the thing you tell your oncologist right away. You are young, so you are likely to endure the bleo well, but the risk of fibrosis is non the less real.

            Best wishes
