Chemotherapy - Txlady

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Ovarian and Fallopian Tube Cancer. Posted on January 12, 2019 View this journey (10 Experiences)

6 cycles of Carboplatin/Taxol. I was violently ill for a week following first cycle. Could not keep anything down, even water despite anti-nausea drugs. My husband finally asked me to try baking soda disolved in water and that neutralized the acid an helped tremendously. I learned you must stay hydrated. The chemo zaps all of the moisture in your body. I really suffered with constpation. I found that if he drank lots of water and took stool softeners it really helped. The water also helps flush the drugs from your body faster.
