Many of us will agree that the anxiety and fear of the unknown is worse than the treatment itself. At the center where I went, they offered beverages and crackers or muffins. I watched tv, others may nap or read or enjoy a good conversation.
I did AC and after the first one, went out to lunch. RN said eat light, and I learned that meant soup and toast, not a chicken sandwich. I found each treatment to be very similar in the time it took, the side effects, etc. Know that you will hear of a hundred side effects but you will probably only get a few of them. You'll want to drink lots of water and juice the first couple days, as the chemo can be toxic on the bladder. The pre-meds can be constipating, so take precautions at the first sign of trouble.
Chemo was on Tuesday for me, and around 10:00 each chemo night, I threw up. No nausea, just a little wave, and that was it. No nausea or vomiting at all the rest of the time. I was tired for a couple days but worked from home and went in to the office half days on THurs and Friday. Listen to your body...mine said to sleep. My onc encouraged exercise, so I walked a mile a day and I think it helped me to feel better and alert
I developed acid reflux around Friday of each week and it lasted a few days...other than that, business as usual. Some tastes may change, I was not interested in coffee during chemo but drank tea instead. You'll see what works for you....
Hang in there! Get through that first one and it will be all down hill after you know what to expect. And if others want to pamper you, let them...
