      I don't think it's uncommon. Even though it's a pill, it's still chemo. I have friend who was taking a chemo pill and she said the side effects were the same as an infusion. I guess it really depends on the person. Are you taking anything for the nausea? You might speak with your Oncologist about taking Zofran. That stuff works miracles on chemo induced nausea.

      TC, there was an article on the Nightly news last night about pregnant women taking Zofran, I didn't catch all of it so I don't really know what the piece was about. I just heard Zofran and it caught my attention.

      I found this story. Looks like it's safe for pregnant women to take and won't harm the baby. That's awesome becuase this medicine really works wonders for nausea!! MelMom, it will help you with yours as well. But if for some reason it doesn't, let me know and I'll send you a list of other medicines to speak with your Oncologist about.

      I have found that wiuth nausea, different meds work for different people. My Oncologist perscribes at least three fpor me when ever I start a new chemo so I have a choice and can find what works. I have also found that with nausea gettiong out ahead of it is the best way to keep it in check. That means taking the anti-nausea meds before the nausea starts or at least at the first sign of nausea. Hope this helpsand good luck
