Starting Chemo Tuesday

I start my first chemo on Tuesday with Gemzar and Carboplatin. Is eating before the infusion better than receiving it on an empty stomach? My Dr gave me scrips for compazine and Zofran for nausea.

    I ate a small breakfast beforehand ...
    ... and always ate the box lunch they brought around during chemo (Cisplatin and Etoposide). Never had a problem (I think I have all but 3 pills left of the Compazine I got on day one); hopefully you will be the same. I would imagine everybody is different in this regard.
