    First Chemo for Stage 4 Non Small Cell

    I'm there caretaker here. Wanting to know what she needs to do before and after our first chemo treatment. She got C & G tomorrow, just G next week and then a week off, 6 treatments total. She already doesn't want to eat much ~ pain, gas, full feeling. What can I do to help for the after effects?

      Hi. Agreed about hydration. The doctor had nausea meds sent to the house prior to the first chemo. She takes two pills before chemo and then for the net three days. Ask your doc. Allow times for napping, my grandma gets very tired and needs to nap several times a day. Small frequent meals. Hope this helps.
