My onco says that my drippy, slightly bloody nose and raw throat, and digestive issues are from the irritation to those membranes from the chemo. Not serious, but really uncomfortable. Took a Tylenol, some Imodium, saline spray to nose and all better now! I missed that warning that this may happen so was just surprised. I am learning from here to drink lots of Gatorade during and after chemo helps as does sucking ice during infusions, and will do that next time. I am doing all the tips next time to minimize the SE. It is saving my sanity. I get dose 2 on 8/29. Telling myself do not be scared, the actual infusions were a breeze, it's after that sucks.
