      Lots of great information posted here. The scariest part of chemo is the time before you actually have it. While it can be uncomfortable, and you will likely experience a level of fatigue you couldn't have imagined, it is totally do-able, and the anti-nausea drugs are a big help, so take them on schedule, rather than waiting until you need them. You got this!

      Lots of good answers, I'm glad I stopped by this one to read. I have learned a lot to help me get through mine hopefully. I'm hitting a wall and having a hard time going on.

      Good info. Thank you everyone. I haven't started chemo...yet. Really not sure I want to. But, I feel learning all I can about it may help with the "unknown" a bit at least...though as has been said, everyone reacts differently to the meds.
