I have triple negative bC and also HER positive . Bilateral mastectomy completed 10 weeks ago and no nodes affected.so only biopsy nodes removed either side. I started my first chemo session. Yesterday paclitaxel weekly and carboplatin ( 3 weekly) for 4 cycles before moving onto EC February 2024. I have no effects from the chemo currently but M prescribed anti sickness medication and steroids ( 2 days 2-3)I am also to have filigrim injections for 3 days (day 3-5) . I’m feeling nothing at all from the chemo and doing well. I was reluctant to take the anti sickness medication 9 hours following chemo infusion but I did. I was also reluctant to take the steroids this morning but I have . I do feel I do not need to take the anit sickness or steroids as I am non symptomatic. Would it be ok for me not to take them feeling this way. I would def take them if feeling symptomatic however. I am keen on minimising chemicals put into my body and aware these additional meds are blanketed for all on chemo as a precaution. However , can we decide as individuals based on our own physical experiences of chemo to reduce or omit these additonal meds? I feel I do not know enough myself about chemo treatments to not follow instructions but would like more autonomy and choices given on whether I actually need them myself when being non symptomatic. Yes I am aware things could change quickly and no days will likely be 5e same and don’t for Asec think I’m going to have no symptoms as I progress through the chemo treatments but at times when I’m well and not needing additonal meds is it safe for me to reduce or omit them safely untiI do need them and Inform my oncologist?
