I have my 3rd round of Folfox tomorrow. The 2nd was better than the first for me, no nausea or vomiting and only 2 days in bed instead of 4. The first round I had to get a bag of fluids, I couldn't eat or drink for 4 days. I did eat and drink on the second round. Hopefully it will be better for you too. I am still dreading it, 6 hours in the chair. Best of luck to you.

I had round 2 of FOLFOX this past Tuesday. I am happy to report that I did so much better with it than round 1. I still had some nausea, no appetite for a few days, and the mouth issues...but other than that my body seemed to tolerate it much better.

I will keep both of you in my thoughts and prayers.

Hi there... what fluids are you guys talking about? Is this something you get while getting the chemo? I drank a lot of water but was still tired as heck.

When I was on chemo no matter how much I drank I could not get enough fluids. Partly because the chemo and partly because I have temp ileostomy loop. To keep me from feeling fatigued I would get an extra bag of fluid on chemo day and another one or two on disconnect day. Then in between I sometimes stopped into the infusion center for more. I quickly learned the side effects from dehydration and made sure I drank tons of water and had IV fluids when needed.

The extra fluids that I get during treatment, on disconnect and when I need my magnesium infusion is 0.9% sodium chloride (saline) solution. I also have all fluids, needles, tubes etc to have it administered at home, just don't have anyone trained to administer the stuff.
