I need your expert opinion in regards to the drug(s) that you need to take before starting Chemo. I will be starting mine on April 1 (Wed) and I tried to call Dr's Office but he is on vacation til March 31, 2009. I was talking to my boss this afternoon as she had BC last year. During our conversation she asked me the following: (1) Did your Oncologist prescribed you with a medication before starting Chemo - it is NOT the Anti-Nausea Rx but she said its like Steroid or medication for allergic reaction on the Chemo. (2) Did you go through like a Pre-Chemo training...what she meant is that she came in Dr's office to get info on what to expect during Chemo and of course answer and question session.
I am now in a panic mode because she also asked on of our co-worker today who had BC too, 8 months ago and she went through items (1) and (2).
I know Doctors are different in terms of the mode of treatment. But for my peace of mind, I would like your opinion on this.
