Hello everyone, I am 35 years old and stage 4 ovc. Had 6 rounds of Taxol with carb. My ca125 was down to 8. Now in a clinical trial and on 3rd round of lower dose taxol. My ca125 up to 14, but my onc just calls it noise for now. I was wondering if anyone else experiences dizziness. It started during my first chemo and happens whenever I look up and lie down?

extremely lightheaded during my last cycle of chemo. It turned out all my electrolytes had tanked. I waited too long to see the doctor and ended up in the ER and a five-day stay in the hospital. Make sure you let your doctor know.

I myself never experienced dizziness, but I agree with Karen that you should let your doctor know. Hopefully it'll be something that can be easily remedied.

Take care,

or chemo nurses. It could be something very simple to remedy. Congrats on your super CA-125 numbers. ((((HUGS)))) Maria

I got so dizzy after my first treatment that I passed out and ended up in the ER... Turns out I was extremely low on my fluids... They gave me fluids and sent me on my way feeling mucch better. Drink those fluids. I drank sobo,gatorade, water with mio in it so I could make it taste different... Good luck

Thank you ladies for your response. I have been telling them every time about the dizziness, and they say they are not sure why. I get slightly anemic after a treatment, but do drink plenty of fluids. I don't know. Hopefully it will go away after treatments. Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!
