Thanks Ken and Pam for the info. Ryan will be starting cytoxan on Tuesday. The neuro ordered Zofran but the oncology doctor’s office called this morning and told me that they are not going to percribe that. They have an anti-nausea med they give through the IV and last for 5 days. she didn’t say what it was called but she said we would talk about it on Tuesday and we will also talk about the percription for what he needs to take afterwards at home. more than likely zofran.
They also mentioned the saline before and after too. But I am going to write down everything you mentioned Ken so I can make sur ehe gets everything he is supppose to get. I also knew about the being careful after he pees too.
Not sure how much cytoxan he will get on Tuesday but he will get it once a month for 6 months to start.
We are praying this works because we really don’t know what we are going to do if it doesn’t. Our Grand Rapids neuro suggested if it doesn’t work then Ryan might be facing a bone marrow transplant. But we don’t want to go there if we don’t have too.
So praying hard that cytoxan works for Ryan.
