Worried- I did have side effects for sure but managed to work full time (actually 10 hour days treatment week) to make up for the treatment day I had to miss. For the most part I suffered from naseau, fatigue, cold sensitivity, neuropothy just to name a few. I did find for me, when I dropped my "additional" naseua meds like Zofran (not amend, I always took that) but when I dropped the naseau meds, my weezy feeling subsided and actually got better.
I did drop the Oxi after round 7 due to neuropothy and glad I did cause it seems to be getting worse...tingling all of the time now.
All in all what I have learned is that EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT, I can't stress that enough but for me, keep hydrated really helped and actully keeping busy and moving helped with the fatigue. I found that the less I did, laid around, the more tired I was.
Hope that helps and wish nothing but the best for the two of you!! It will go by faster than you think
