Topic: Gemzar/Cisplatin - experience/what to expect??
Hi there guys, I was wondering if I could get some information from you all, we saw Dr. Javle two days ago and the lung biopsy came back positive so mom starts chemo this Friday. I'm flying down to Houston since I don't want her going through this ordeal without me by her side. Can you please give me an idea as to what to expect, side effects, hair loss? should I get her hair trimmed/buzzed early? Does the hair fall out right away? She is so scared of losing her hair, I think this is causing her more grief than the agony of sitting at the hospital for 6 hours.
She will go through 4 cycles every other week, ideas on how to many time go by fast when we are there, anything and everything will help for me to get an idea as to what to expect and how to deal with the ordeal that is upon us.
Thank you so much in advance.
