Wow Debbie,
Glad it went so well for you. 9 hrs is a long day. Hopefully the steroids and anti nausea drugs helped you today and will help with the Cisplatin tomorrow! Stay positive and strong. I hope you see some immediate positive results! Keep us posted. Sending you positive thoughts and energy! <3 Michele

one down... good for you. I like that they gave you a slowed down drip. It makes for a longer day, but they're being cautious as to how your body reacts. Remember we're right here cheering you on.

So glad you got the first one behind you and that the side effects were minimal. Keep us posted when you can, and I'm praying that the rest go just as smoothly!

Like Maria said, the first one is the scariest. I found counting down the treatments really helped me deal with them. It was the mindset of "let git'er done." It really helped to know the side effects coming.

When I had a side effect I was not familiar with, I consulted my guide, given to me by the clinic. Or I posted on here. There is a wealth of information. It helped me feel more in control.
