There have been side effects

The other things that has happened with my chemotherapy is that all my hair has fallen out. I'm completely bald under this scarf with just a few little gray hairs growing here and there. I thought, gosh, a bunch of gray hair which wasn't there before. And my hands have turned very dark. The palms of my hands and the palms of my feet, they're like a blue/black color almost. And the back of my fingernails are dark like that, too. And my tongue has a hyper pigmentation on it. Supposedly, all of that stuff will go away after my chemo is done. But I don't have the sores and I've been able to eat basically what I want to eat. After my three or four days of nausea and vomiting off and on, basically those are the only problems that I've been having.
