Hey Ellie, 

My dad also had his first chemo session today.. He was prescribed Capecitabina 500mg 8 capsules /day. Does your hubby have to take anything similar?

All the best to both you you. Sending loads of love

Hi Ellie, 

Yes my dad had an IV yesterday too, and started taking the tablets from today. 

So far he has been feeling OK, a bit of a headache towards the end of the day. 

Hoping we both get good news after the first cicle and that scans come back with good news before next cycle. 

Loads of hugs and positive thoughts to you both.
