Hi Jim, According to your email today is your first day of chemo. It's normal to be afraid, I was. What is your chemo and antinause? When I was daigonsed in 1997 my chemo was Gemzar (GREAT CHEMO), and anitnause was and is decadron and zofran. I never have had much stomach problems and no vomiting. I have had other side affects. Do you have mets to any other organ in the body? Where I go for chemo my routine starts like this: the chemo nurse inserts the IV (not big deal). The first bag on the pole is my antinause, when that is gone - next comes the chemo and when that is empty -- the saline back wash. Were you told how long your chemo will take? Hang in Jim, I will be with you in mind and spirit. You can do this. Fear is very normal. This board is a wealth information and loving people, all in some kind of pain and understand where you are coming from. I'm With You Today, KAY S.
