    Has anyone done the Chemo called RICE? Im trying to find out what type of side effects are common. The first time i had cancer i did ABVD and i had very few side effects. Im hoping for the same this time around. Fingers Crossed!

      Fun times. Good luck with it. My dad only has experience with the C- carboplatin. Side effects were hair loss, hiccups, and fatigue. The doctor wrote a prescription for the hiccups, and they disappeared. It looks like you're in a good place for treatment anyway.
