My mother-in-law is taking her first round of chemo as I type this. They are giving her a booster(not sure what that's for?) then taxol/cisplatin. When will she start feeling sick? Do all chemo treatments make you sick? They said her hair will fall out. Is that usually over time? She is still in the hospital after just being diagnosed with stage IV. We will be taking her home tomorrow. Not sure what to expect. Should we stay the night with her when we bring her home? She is not married but lives less than a mile from us. She also had to have nephrostomy tubes put in her kidneys because the tumor has pushed her bladder up and stretched out her ureters so her kidneys were not able to flush out the urine. Her kidneys are working fine now but we have to deal with the darn urine bagsf or a while!
