Topic: Cis/Gem side effects
I've had my first round of my second treatment and the same side effects showed up as they did the last time. About 24 hours after chemo I got these flu-like symptoms... feverish, aches, pains, chills, my ears hurt, my eyes burn. All things related to flu but it's certainly not the flu. It lasts a few days then it disappears.
Uncontrollable thirst. Does anyone get this? I'm drinking water and juice like it's going out of style.
Pain in my lower right abdomen and right shoulder.
Luckily no nausea. I'm taking plenty of drugs to counteract it. No appetite though.
I've been craving Vitamin C drinks... OJ, grapefruit, lemonade.
