    these are normal ehh?

    and i want to know is it possible to feel like after chemo like before chemo?
    Sercan, all that you are feeling is completely normal. Brian still has tingling and numbness in his legs and he is 4 months post chemo. he also was wiped out (although he still went out and went on fire calls) he had ringing in his ears and all of the same things you are experiencing. it may make you feel like crap, but it is working hang in there!! sounds like you are handling it great!.. and as far as how you will feel after chemo, Brian feels better than he ever did!! go figure

    keep up the good work!! and keep us updated
