Hi, thanks for the reply. I take zolphran(sp) dexamethan(some type of steroid) for 3days when I start chemo. that helps vomiting I will try imodium for gas this time around. Side effects are really hard this time I have my 3 this thursday, I will talk to doc about it. I do not want to do too many drugs though. I think this time he may start the avastin which is what I had on my time time of taking chemo in 6-10. So time will tell I try to enjoy the good days but it does get old. I am so tired of feeling like crap I will find out how many more sessions I have to take too. I do not want to do chemo this summer last summer I lost the whole summer with this after the 1st surgery too. I already told them that so they should be aware of it, if not I will remind them I would like to have some time off to just enjoy life without the interruptions of always being hooked up to a fanny pack with poison it every other week. Plus I think I need a break it will almost be a yrs. I have missed so many birthdays, weddings, graduation, just normal things because of this. Now I want to enjoy at least one summer. I was wondering about the juicing though when I can go back to that. I was able to do juicing the fist time on chemo but this time I can't because I get diahria more than usual with chemo. So it is a catch 22 for me. I try to eat the good and healthy things all the time, plus juice.
