I'm also in France
So sorry to hear both your husband and yourself have gotten cancer diagnoses. It must be a surreal experience!
My husband is the one in the family diagnosed with Colon cancer - so we are not in the same boat, but I had a trafik accident in October-16 (in a wheelchair for months due to fractures 'all over') so we have had a very bad year 2016 (and ongoing) in the family.
Hubby had 4 Folfox before his liver(mets) surgery and 8 after, of these 8, Oxilaplatin was 1/2 dose in 2 and totally excluded in the last 3 chemo - this was due to periferal neuropathy.
Hubby did not have any nausia but he had another Bad reaction that you might want to be aware of can happen.
He got Steroid induced hyperglycemia, diagnosed after 3 chemo.
Please read here: "Glucocorticoid-induced hyperglycemia is common in patients undergoing cancer treatment ... We recommend that all cancer patients receiving gc be screened for hyperglycemia at least 4–6 hours after gc administration
." 2013 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3851349/
Hubby drank A Lot of water and I thought/said to him that is good for flushing out the chemo - he had No problem what so ever drinking A Lot of water But that was of course due to the hyperglycemia...
I noticed that you Judi said:
"I am drinking at least 3 litres of, mainly water each day as I reckon it will flush everything out of my system.
" Maybe that is normal for you? Just wanted to mention what happened to hubby.
Our experience is that to test blood Glucos "at least 4-6 hours" after giving the 'Glucocorticoid' is not something they care about/prioritize at our hospital. Our Oncologists said to hubby that what happened to him was very rare ! Well, not according to that article...
After they took away the steroids when hubby got his chemo, he felt the treatments were manageble, well he did feel the neuropathy and when he told the onc that she cut the Oxi in half and then removed it.
I hope your next chemo will be fine for you !! Please let us know.
Kind Regards /LPL
