I flew to cancer center and got my first round of Oxaliplatin/Xeloda. They give what they call fractionated chemo: devided in three days, I thought it was a single dose devided in 3, but now I think they give you a tripple dose in three days so you only come every three weeks, because you have to fly there. I received 50 mg Oxa first day, 100 on the second and another 10 hundred on the third. I don't know how I got home, I was so noxious I couldn't take Xeloda, I only took it the first day. I also received 2 units of blood because of my hemoglobin fell, so maybe that was a factor. I spend home sleeping the whole day yesterday, (got home day before). So please help me to sort it out:
1. HOw much Oxa do you get each time, how often do you get it and do you get noxious?
Thanks everybody for you help, for the past three days life was not worth living.
