On Wednesday after getting disconnected. I had to go get a Brain MRI. My doctor was worried about how dizzy I Keep getting. (Even laying down in bed the room spins.) He said he just wants to make sure it's nothing.( I hope so). He also put me on meds for dizziness.

Hi Braelee,

Sorry you're having such a tough time with the chemo and dizziness. It's good that your onc is being thorough and getting things checked out, but I bet it's probably the chemo. Thinking of you and praying for you right now that all will be ok...

One of the things my oncologist warned me about when I had 5Fu 13 years ago was loss of balance and dizzyness. He explained that one of the lesser known but serious side effects of the drug was damage to the cerebellum. He was most insistent that I tell him if I had any symptoms of that sort. Sometimes 5Fu has to be halted. I did not have symptoms during chemo but now 13 years later I am suffereing severe vertigo attacks that have hospitalised me. Best of luck.Ron.

Braelee after reading your post yesterday I got out my oxy diary last night. I finished that chemo in spring of 09 so for an old girl like me it is hard to remember.

by rounds 5 and 6 I was really really dizzy....I wrote that I could not get downstairs without both hands on the railing....just sayin again....it is probably the chemo

hugs, mags

Hope that everything turns out well. Maybr it's just a side effect from the treatment. Hope you feel better soon.

Chemo does weird things, that's for sure. Praying that you feel OK about this and get an all clear.

My bet is on chemo causing the dizziness. It was an issue for me on FOLFOX, and is again now on FOLFIRI.

Funny story about my dizziness yesterday. I've been having MAJOR problems with my youngest (who ran away to his father's house last week, stealing the car). Yesterday I lost my balance and fell against the wall. I fell right into his photo, which crashed to the floor. The nail got pushed into the wall, so I could not re-hang it. Everyone has been asking if I disowned him and took his photo down! ;)
