Topic: First Chemo Treatment

My dad had his first chemo treatment today.  Gem/Cis....

He says he feels fine and feels just the same as he did before treatment.  They gave him some antinausea medicine to take if he starts getting sick.  They gave him some before his treatment.

At least I can plan my trip around his chemo now.

Re: First Chemo Treatment

that's good news--we are 6 treatments in and my husband has done great with all of them so far (on same treatment)--he just experiences the "tired"
part.
