truematch20 Posted September 21, 2008 Share Posted September 21, 2008 Hi, my 59 year old beautiful healthy mum who's never been sick a day in her life has just been diagnosed with sclc limited stage. She has just finished her first 3 day cycle of chemo but she has been in hospital 3weeks now and the reason is her sodium is so low and they just can't get it back up. they were keeping it pretty steady on a fluid restriction but during chemo she had to keep drinking so it went way down again and she is more sick from that than the chemo. Did anyone else remember their sodium being an issue at all? The onc seems quite baffled by it all. I'm so glad to have found this site , the stats are so depressing and scary for me but the hope faith and humour in this one site is uplifting.
