Which oral chemo?  Hexalen?  My mom was on it once but kept throwing up (unrelated), so it was useless.  However oral chemo is essentially just effective as IV.  That being said, read the product insert (or get it from the web).  Her oncologist recommended she take Tagament with Hexalen.  Tagament is contradicted (not allowed) with Hexalen.  Thus, do your own research.

The only oral chemo I was on was etoposide which was very easy on me. I did have a lot of thinning of my hair and just went ahead and shaved it but other than that I felt fine while on it.
