Hi rike, I can tell you about my experience with chemo, but it's a different chemo than your husband's. They gave me a lot of pre-chemo drugs (for nausea, for allergies, for pain). I had to take anti-nausea drugs for several days after infusions. I had other side effects due to my heart problem (atrial fib). I had a very rapid heartbeat that I learned to control with drugs after it happened again. I had 6 cycles of chemo over 6 months period (once a month). My husband could leave me for a couple of hours except when I had heart problems. Keep in mind that all anti nausea drugs cause severe constipation even though I normally is prone to diarrhea. He needs to start taking stool softeners right away, because it takes a few days to have an effect.
I have been cancer free since my RC six years ago.
I still have mucus.
I can always tell when I haven't been drinking enough water. Because that is when the mucus seem so much thicker and takes effort to get it out.
I guess it is a way of letting me "never Forget" I am a changed man.
Hope this helps

My Uro who is one of the top guys claims that by this time the mucus production should have stopped. The last time I saw him I tol I still flush to break up my imaginary mucus. Keep me updated on what your Uro has to say I will be interested in hearing what he has to say.
