    First chemo was okay; but the subsequent days involved a lot of nausea. Day 5 and 6 were very difficult.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Had a 10% reduction in the chemo dose which should reduce the nausea I had on Days 4, 5, and 6 the first time. The doctor also provided me with alternative times to take my nausea medications so I won't be so sick. Well, the reduction didn't seem to make much difference in the nausea. Oh well, I'm going to ask for another 10 % reduction for round 3.
