Hi Kathy - everyone has given you great advice. I'm a pharmacist, but I don't work in oncology and I knew just enough to be utterly terrified of chemo. I just finished chemo in August. One of my biggest fears was nausea/vomiting - the drugs to prevent it really do work - I never threw up once and the chemo nurse told me to call right away if I did because their goal is absolutely zero vomiting! The chemo nurses are truly amazing, I've never been so well taken care of, both physically and mentally. You're going to be ok, and while I didn't enjoy it, the 4 months went by pretty quickly. Good luck tomorrow! (Mondays were my chemo day too!) Missy
