I will begin cisplatin/taxol next week for recurrence. Last year I took six rounds of carbo/taxol. I have been prescribed Dexamethason (4mg) 5 tablets the night before a treatment, and 5 tablets the morning of the treatment. I assume they will be giving me more steroids along with Benadryl for the pre-meds. I also know that they told me I would be given extra fluids.
Last year I hated the steroids. I was hungry and nervous, jittery for a few days.
Interested in hearing from others who have had this regiment.
