I had AC as my first line. Please ask your doc about taking a med to protect your heart - at the hospital I'm at now in IL, the docs give Zinacarg to keep patients from having damage from adriamycin. They've given patients adraimycin for a year and not seen any heart damage.
Not to scare you, but at the first facility I had treatment, I was told that heart damage can occur after 7 or 8 treatments, and not to worry, but I had damage after the 6th treatment. That's why I'm advising.
I had almost no trouble at all with AC - I even forgot ot take the anti-nausea meds after treatment. If I did have small waves of nausea, I ate sugared ginger, drank ginger tea, had gingersnaps, also I have been told of black licorice can help, too, which I like anyways.
It helped me too to have some imagery of what the chemo was doing - killing cancer cells - IO visualize a shark, so people visualize pacman eating up he bad cells. Think of what could work for you. Maybe bring some relaxing music, and a friends or relative that doesn't talk too much! Try to relax with your treatment, you need your energy to fight. And, it also helped me to pray and thank God for my life's blessings.
Have a great day!
