Hello everyone, I am 35 years old and stage 4 ovc. Had 6 rounds of Taxol with carb. My ca125 was down to 8. Now in a clinical trial and on 3rd round of lower dose taxol. My ca125 up to 14, but my onc just calls it noise for now. I was wondering if anyone else experiences dizziness. It started during my first chemo and happens whenever I look up and lie down?

extremely lightheaded during my last cycle of chemo. It turned out all my electrolytes had tanked. I waited too long to see the doctor and ended up in the ER and a five-day stay in the hospital. Make sure you let your doctor know.

I myself never experienced dizziness, but I agree with Karen that you should let your doctor know. Hopefully it'll be something that can be easily remedied.

Take care,

I got so dizzy after my first treatment that I passed out and ended up in the ER... Turns out I was extremely low on my fluids... They gave me fluids and sent me on my way feeling mucch better. Drink those fluids. I drank sobo,gatorade, water with mio in it so I could make it taste different... Good luck

Thank you ladies for your response. I have been telling them every time about the dizziness, and they say they are not sure why. I get slightly anemic after a treatment, but do drink plenty of fluids. I don't know. Hopefully it will go away after treatments. Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!
