My hospital is a 40 minute drive from home.

It is not fun, but it is doable. I was nauseous, but never vomited. Take you anti emetics as prescribed. Hair fell out 2 weeks later, it grew back. I was really tired 2-3 days after. My urine was red that day. I did work through treatment.
Drink as much water as you can, eat what you can, sleep when you need to, be as a active as you can. And let your doctor know if you are struggling. They can give you different meds for nausea, they can give you extra IV fluids. They can’t help you if they don’t know you are in trouble.
You can do this!

Hi, I had the red cocktail, I remember them telling me it will come out as it goes in and it did. From what I can remember, my mum came with me and we got a taxi back, I’m about 20 mins away. Hope you’re ok x
