  • 20 days not 21

    Hi all,
    Just a quick question,
    I started my first round of 3 xBEP on a tuesday due to a public holiday!!
    I am due to start the second round next week and my onco says we will start on the monday not tuesday.
    This means 20 days not 21 for the first cycle ,my onco says this will be o.k. as i didn't have much trouble with round 1 (just felt a bit fluey on days 2-6 otherwise not bad )
    I just wondered what you guys thought , will it make much difference ?
    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Swan

    On round 3 of my BEP ,I was given 5 days worth of infusion in 4 days .
    Monday was a holiday, so it went from Tuesday to Friday with out much noticable difference.

    Best Wishes

      In Europe its not uncommon to give it all in 3 days, the only concern might be a bit more nausea but with the proper meds that shouldn't be a problem
