Taf/Mek combo 2 weeks in, common symptoms?

    Hi All, 

    Today marks 2 weeks on taf/ mek combo and, overall, not feeling terrible.  I had one evening with vomiting, a fever spike, massive chills which was resolved with tylenol and sheer exhaustion from shaking!  

    Other than that, the only complaints (but I am NOT complaining! LOL!) are fatigue, not bad but I nap during day while kids are in school, and – this is weird – while my body might feel fine temperature-wise, my face feels like it is on fire! Crazy, right? I also seem to feel very full all the time.

    I see onc on Monday and will let him know. I am wondering how long before I will have scans again?

    Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
