I had a question for people out there that have had AML and been treated with Chemotherapy. My wife finished her last round of consolidation in early August this year. She had AML M5. She has done really well thru her induction and went into remission and her 3 consolidation treatments. The only issue she has had and still bothers her is she still gets nauseous sometimes but doesn't have to vomit, just feel nauseous. Is that something that is normal to have for awhile after treatments? She was given this drug called "ARA C" for the consolidations that she got. Any help out there would be appreciated. Also, after her treatment her doctor told her to just come in every 3 weeks to get her blood checked from now on. I would have thought they would have done another bone marrow test but I assume they can tell by the blood work that she is still in remission. Anyone out there get a bone marrow test after completing all your consolidations?
