Hi ladies, I am just regaining my strength from my chemo cycle. I had gemzar on Feb 9th followed by cisplatin on the 11th. My goodness! the cisplatin knocked me down. I had extreme nausea and vomiting in spite of the steroids and anti-nausea. I was in the hospital for a week.
I have a question for all of you veterans, what steroid do you use? They gave me decadron (dexamethasone) but I seemed to get a severe headache from it. I'm trying to research another option for the next cycle.
Any input welcome.
PS I apologize if this comes through twice.
