is for bodily fluids as just in case he cant walk to bathroom. I plan on keeping gloves, adult wipes, plastic bags, etc. Has anyone had experience taking care of
someone with these issues? Can you dispose in regular garbage, or use special bags? He starts chemo within 2 weeks, and I gave oncologist a list of 5 other questions,
which I typed and left for them to answer at their convenience but that was a couple of weeks ago. I just don't want to think I am a pest!
I am really concerned about side effects of Xeloda affecting hands and feet since he is on crutches and I am afraid to mention it to my husband yet. He has info that I printed out about the medication from different sites, so I know he is aware. I guess on my day off I will have to have another heart to heart with him and make
sure he calls oncology department with concerns I feel like I have had to do all the research for him, explaining to his family, I think he would rather have me do it
that himself but I am starting to feel the burden. I explained I would do everything I can to make it easier on him as he is the one to go thru it. Just don't know if this is the right approach, but I guess there is no right way as everyone's path is different, but I would welcome ideas from either ones taking or have taken chemo or the care takers.
