Topic: Pain in liver during chemo?
Hello to all. Well i'm here again, with another chemo question. I'm sure there will be many more to come! My mum had her second dose of chemo last week (only Gemcitabine as platelets were too low for Cis). A few days later she experienced "agonising" pain in her liver area - she's never had this before. She said that it felt like her liver was burning. The chemo nurses said that it was the chemo destroying the tumours. The pain has since dulled.
Is this correct? I've read quite a bit on this site now and have never heard of this being the reason for experiencing pain during chemo. Anyway, if this is the case then good, burn away!!!!
