The adriamycin was first administered and went fine. As soon as the cytoxan started, I started to feel bad - weak, listless, like lying down. That continued. Anybody else have that kind of problem? Any suggested solutions? My next appointment is in a week and a half

Sorry for the late response as I just came across your query. I went through chemo with Cytoxan, too. Also feeling weak... like I had the flu. I would literallly be in bed for a week and by the time I felt back to normal, it was time again for another treatment.
Be sure to tell your doctor or nurse of your discomfort. They will be able to help you. Keep in mind that although you will go through some challenges during treatment, it WILL be over and you WILL be better. I am 2.5 years out from chemo and now it just seems like a bad dream that I am slowly beggining to forget.
