Radioembolism side effects


My mother-in-law (read mother-in-love) is on her second radioembolism treatment for pancreatic cancer which metastisized to her liver.  The first treamtment went great with the only side effect being fatigue.  Her second and last treatment was 2 weeks ago.  She experienced fatigue the first week.  2 days ago, she started feeling nauseous.  We thought it might be the antibiotic, but she's been on the amoxicillin for almost 2 weeks with no problems.  It doesn't happen at the same time each day.  Her symptoms are chills, then vomiting, then hot flash, then sleeps.  Usually lasts about 1-1/2 to 2 hours before she falls asleep.  This has happened 3 days in a row.

Can anyone share on this?

    Chemotherapy by pill

    Have you looked into the chemotherapy in pill form? It's an every day type of treatment, and the results are not as fast, but it's easier on the body and there are drug test trial opportunities for the type of cancer and spreading that you described.
