Topic: Oxaliplatin and Gemsitabine
Mom has started chemo, which includes oxaliplatin and gemsitabine. She is having a dose on Tuesday and hopes to not feel as bad as she did last time. Any advice for her? Her symptoms were very similar to the flu. She slept for a couple of day and just felt pretty crummy. No nausea, but a lot of stomach pain. The dr said that any platin chemo is hard on you. They did suggest that she get some steroids to bring home to take 72 hours after the chemo. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
