Re: New to this site: My story


You should have your first chemo earlier in the week and have written instructions of the numbers to contact if you have side effects that you need assistance with.

Think of the side effects that concern you most. If you post I'm sure the ladies on this board have experienced it and have a plan of what helped the most.

Your medical team has various medications that minimize the negative effects of chemo and will prescribe steroids, anti-naseau meds, etc. If they have not covered this with you make sure you have a nurse explain it so you feel comfortable knowing what to expect.

"bad stuff" might not be as bad as you think. That is why you pay the medical staff the big bucks - so that they can take great care of you while they help you eliminate the cancer.
