  • HI

    a warm welcome to the community. Nerves are understandable. 

    It was oral chemo that my husband had but his CNS talked him through everything and answered all his questions so I'm sure they'll take good care of you tomorrow.

  • Hi

    My husband is on his 4th week of chemo. Hes doing radiotherapy at the same time. The first week he was advised to just take the anti sickness for 3 days and see how he got on without but he couldn’t keep anything down and soon as he was back on the anti sickness he was fine. He takes his chemo an hr before his radiotherapy. The only thing he’s complained about is having an odd taste in his mouth but not sure if that’s the chemo or radiotherapy. 
    If you have any questions I’m sure he could answer them for you. 

    Hope all goes well for you.
