Four days ago, my dad had his first round of chemotherapy (oxaliplatin infusion and capecitabine tablets) plus Avastin infusion.
Along with some other medicines, he was given dexametasone tablets 2mg, four tablets every morning for three days. Ever since he got home from hospital he's been unable to sleep at night, only snatching an hour or so here and there. In addition to this, he's had gastro-oesophageal reflux which is making him retch and occasionally vomit, and his voice has gone husky.
My hunch is this is being caused by the dexametasone. As he took his last dose this morning, I'm hoping these side effects will ease.
Has anyone else had a similar experience, and if so, did you find anything which helped?
