Chemo Recipes

Post in a comment the chemo "recipe" that was used to treat you.

My chemo recipe (aka protocol):
- In-patient treatment
- IV drip to start hydration with Sodium bicarbonate (goal is to make blood alkaline so that metho will not damage kidneys)
- 2 dexamethasones and 1 zofran (anti-nausea drugs)
- when urine is >7, chemo is started
- IV push of: 0.6mg/m^2 dactinomyacin on days 1 and 2 and methotrexate (100mg/m^2) on day 1
- IV drip of methotrexate (300mg/m^2) over 4 hours
- leucovorin pills (3 pills every 6 hours) started 24 hours after metho infusion
