Hi, all! Just one question here... My mom (dx Stage IV with 3 mets to liver) is about 8 days removed from her first FOLFOX chemo treatment (5 hours @ the "parlor", then 46 hours with the 5FU pump) and is finding that she has quite a bit of insomnia the past few nights. She feels as if she has the WORST case of restless/jittery legs syndrome ever.
Just was wondering if this is common and if any of you have found any natural or pharmaceutical ways of ensuring a better night's sleep? I know that her body needs the rest to help with the healing process, especially during these "off weeks" from chemo.
Thanks a bunch!
