Good evening ladies
I am having a tough time finding all the useful information about this cocktail on the website. No search brings up much information and a lot of search results are from 2010-15. It is all scattered and unorganised.
The idea is to share experiences of treatment, if you are going through it now, or have gone through it in the past.
What you took with you during treatment
What worked for you to ease any nausea you may have had.
What other side effects you had - from the mild to the really bad. (I am terrified of fistula and they won't operate on me if one happens except to fit a colostomy or urostomy)
How long you were on the cocktail?
If it worked, how long for, how long did it take to work?
Did any of you have a portacath? What were your experiences of that?
I'd really like something comprehensive that i can ask the moderators to stick to the top of the treatment thread so any woman who feels she needs answers can go directly there.
Please put in any advice or information that you think I may ahve missed.
