Side effects

Please feel free to add your 2cents by posting a comment of your own side effects from treatment.

My side effects:
from the anti-nausea drugs:
- flushed cheeks (apparently this is from the steroids in the dexamethsone)
- "wacked-out" feeling
- constipation and hard stools
- increased appetite

from the chemo (I think):
- slight nausea
- diaharrea after the constipation (crazy, I agree)
- watery eyes, dry eyes, red eyes
- headaches
- fatigue
- general achiness and malaise
I usually feel better after a week following treatment.
