Can anyone help me with expectations on Cisplatin with 5FU?

I have finished 7 weeks of radiation, with 3 concurrent doses of Cisplatin. I have been prescribed 3 more "follow-up "seek and destroy"" dosages of Cisplatin with 5 FU.

I handled the radiation and Cisplatin reasonably easily. But, they're telling me the follow up doses are dispensed over a 4-day period. A "ball" goes on my belt on a Monday, and slowly delivers Cisplatin and 5FU into my blood port.

I'm wanting to know how people handled and dealt with this treatment. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
