Topic: need some advice on chemo treatments
Hi everyone, I am currently on cis/gem combo chemo. I have a 3 week cycle, day 1 cis/gem, day 8 cis/gem then 1 week off. I have managed one full cycle, I had pretty much all the side effects from nausea to ringing in the ear and mild hair loss. The next cycle, 5 days after the first treatment I ended up in hospital for 5 days with sepsis so the oncologists cancelled the next session and said they would wait and start a new cycle. I feel like I just can't do it anymore, chemo really sucks!!! Im so sick of being sick. I have an appointment with the oncologist next week to discuss where we go from here. I guess my question is, is this a fairly normal regime to be on? any advice? also I have just found out that I had clear transection margins but an R1 radial margin along the left bile duct. What does this mean???
