I am on Cisplatin and Etoposide which make me sick the week of..and then till Monday. However, after that I get these intense night sweats. It could be from the Leukine shots that I am getting or a left-over from Chemo. The sweats are when I am asleep and I awake to being cold and the sheets very wet.
Anybody have any idea or suggestion for me?

Hey, it's just a reaction to the chemo nothing really you can do about it except cope. However you should make sure your not having a really high temp and you should keep a constant look at your temperature to make sure it is not going to high. Sometimes this will happen as a reaction to the bleomycin, however it could also be an indication of infection especially if your white blood cell counts are low. You don't want to be neutropenic so be careful and communicate this to your doctor.

Hope that helps a bit ....

Oh forgot to mention that if you want to mail me directly you can mail me at: jnigra@a1printingplus.com and I'll be happy to answer anything I can about the treatment. It's a long horrible trip, but it will get better and you'll be back on your feet. I promise.
