My husband will be receiving 1 or 2 cycles of BEP; probably not starting until the end of this month. I know everyone responds to chemo differently, but I'm wondering if anyone can give me a general idea of how long the side effects of chemo can last? Does the naseau and fatigue last well beyond the completion of treatment? For example, if he only does 1 cycle that lasts 3 weeks, he will be done by mid-October - will he still be feeling the effects around Thanksgiving? Also, how quickly might he lose his hair (not that he has much to begin with ;-o) Just curious as to what other people's experiences have been. Thanks for the input.
