I was in hospital 5days every 2weeks breaks. I was on medical leave. My treatment was 6 session every 2weeks. 5days 24h infusion. I expected I will be killed by chemo, very scary. Was really not that bad, pass true, I am in remission since February 2024, I feel blessed. You will get true to!!!!

After my 6 months of chemo is when I felt the nausea and weakness but I've seen we all have a different reaction, everyone has different effects

Not to worry. I took the same regimen. Ist and 2 nd cycle may trouble a bit. Advise 3-4 l of water daily during treatment. I didn't take any leave expect 03 days hospitalization & continued office work. Felt weakness for first 3-4 days after chemo. But kept moral high and did all work myself. That kept me at per peers and not felt out of society. Shave hair, after 1st cycle, if found hair loss. That prevent negative emotions. Take precaution against infection by using face mask and following advice of dietician. Hope above helps
