So, we have a treatment plan.
Radiation daily for 25-30 treatments and 5 weeks of chemo (once a week Taxol and carboplatin) then surgery after.
I have a few questions:
1. do you recommend a port? I had them ask about it because working in the pediatric oncology population it is invaluable. What are your thoughts?
2. Anyone been through this treatment? Both the medical oncologist and radiologist assured them the side effects are minimal (we are all relieved) but may worsen as treatment progress. Looking for information on side effects, what they were, how bad were they, and when did you feel you needed the most assistance. I am plannign to head down for a few weeks during the chemo/radiation phase and want ot come when I will be the most help.
3. What nutritional supplements did you use? Any recommendations for dietary medifications to minimize weight loss? Any sucess with juices?
Any other comments would be appreciated. Than you all for the support you have provided!
