Hi All,

My best friend had her first chemo treatment with Avastin, Eloxatin, and 5-FU and it went extremely well. She has had not a bit of nausea and felt really good all weekend. I know she was premedicated with 2 different antinausea drugs before chemo and they gave her 2 different antinausea meds which she takes even though she is not nauseated. My question is will she start to feel more side effects as her treatments go on or can we expect her to be this good throughout her treatments. I know that fatigue does set in towards the end of treatment because of its accumulative effect. She has had a little cold intolerance, but nothing too bad. Thank you in advance.
