Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest counsel.
Take hot baths or showers. If you have any type of bath salts for body aches, pour them in full force. When I was on Taxol, I lived in the tub and shower. Also, as someone stated, don't hesitate to take pain meds. Tylenol 3 is helping me at this time but I do have stronger meds if needed. As another cancer survivor told me, pain control and management is very important. The body has a more difficult time healing if there is pain that keeps you from resting.
