Side affects

I’m a week into my first chemo session and the side affects seem to be wearing off apart from 1! I have terrible wind and loose stools! Has anyone else has this?

hi, yes I get that, tell your onc so you can have something that will deal with the loose stools. be aware that some side effects can happen later in the cycle, keep note of them and let the onc know. x

Me ! Chemo farts are renowned in our house and loose stools are the norm from mid week 2 till mid week 3= I havent mentioned to onc as I have “control” so to speak so dont really want to be taking anything for it as could end up the opposite but I do make sure I drink enough fluids and eat a few things to help it sort itself out.

If you are worried speak to doc
