    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    First round of chemo on April 6, 2012. Four hours at the oncology center, plus two days on the pump. I felt OK for about 24 hours. Then had some nausea for 2-3 days. Some vomiting and diarrhea. Some loss of appetite for 3-4 days. After that everything sort of went back to normal. Next round is in 3 days.

    Easy to Do: Not Specified
    Minimal Side Effects: Not Specified
