  • Hi Onos,

    Although I have no experience of autoimmune treatment, I have had chemotherapy, surgery and am now on my post-op chemo and most of the side effects you are describing seem common to both. I think you really need to talk to your cancer team as all of these can be helped by tablets and medicines which they can prescribe for you (tablets for diarrhoea, constipation and nausea, medicine to help alleviate reflux, etc) I have used all of these and my side effects have been largely manageable as I result. Taking as much time as necesssry to rest (for both of you) is also important as fatigue is definitely another inevitable side effect of treatment and rest is the only thing that helps with that. I usually have an afternoon nap most days and in bed around 10pm or before. I hope some of this helps you but you definitely need to have a good chat with your cancer team and explain to them the issues you are having. You will find them very supportive. Good luck. CB
