I had my first Carboplatin infusion Tuesday last week. Last evening and today I have been vomiting, both after eating or drinking something, and when nothing has been consumed for some time beforehand. Is this likely to be chemotherapy related, a week later?

Hi Still me... yes, sometimes this can happen with chemotherapy drugs. I would check with your oncologist. If you are not able to keep anything down you could get severely dehydrated.
So sorry for your condition. I wish you all the best. I will say a special prayer for you tonight... pup
