Wow: No way we can answer this. Infusion protocols vary depending on the chemo. Side effects also depend on the type of chemo and how sick the patient is to begin with. Your oncologist will be able to answer this better. Do remember, attitude is important. If you go to therapy convinced you will be sick, you WILL be sick. Hope you do very well.
