      The side effects vary from person to person. I can tell you about mine. I threw up a lot. Wally the Wastebasket and I were close friends lol. I had diarrhea really
      badly. It is a good idea to drink lots of water. Ask your doctor first. There are medicines to help with the side effects. The hardest thing will be to find something to eat that you like. You also might become pretty tired. Make sure to have family and friends around to help you eat, clean your house, take you to the doctor, etc. Otherwise, call the American Cancer Society. They have free volunteers. They want to help. Let us know some detailed questions and we will be happy to help you on this forum.

      An odd side effect for me was my right ankle kept cramping. My foot would jerk forward during chemo. The nurses would prop up my foot up and put a heating pad on the ankle, once they had to slow down the drip to stop the cramping and jerking.

      I hadn't heard of the foot cramping before, but I shouldn't be surprised - I had hand cramping.
      Not during the TC infusion, but in the weeks following. As soon as it got better, It was time to start another round. Thankfully I'm through ............for the time being. Who knows "WhatsNext"?
