    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Nausea medicine): I took a combination of drugs. I was on CHOP chemo cocktail , but most significantly , antibody therapy. I was on many other medicaions either to help with the symptoms of chemo or with the effects to my body from the chemo.
    I took iv drugs for nausea and compazine and ativan at home for nausea. I took shots at home when my neutrofil count went down. I did take anti-depressants for a time and also prednisone to aid in the chemo process. Other than being tired, I had to take a leave at my job
    because my white blood count was very low and made me vulnerable to infections.
    As I write this, it seems all negative, but it wasn't . It took me along time to mourn the loss of my hair{probably 5 years)
