My daughter started her 2nd week of radiation today. She gets cisplatin once a week on Wednesdays. This past Friday i took her to th er because she felt like she wasnt getting enough O2. They did a ct and abgs and said it was probably the chemo that hit her hard. She sleeps most of the day if not throwing up and awake at night afraid to fall asleep and not breathe. She is on dilaudid and hydrocodone for pain. How can I help her? I am an RN but I am lost . The radiation covers her abdomen too because of abdominal aortic lymph node involvement and I know that is causing most of N & V.
