Patient Encounter 1 CINV

MJ is a 42-year-old woman diagnosed with stage II hormone-receptor positive, HER2-negative breast cancer. She has been treated with lumpectomy and radiation therapy and presents to clinic for cycle 1 day 1 of adjuvant doxorubicin and cyclo-phosphamide (the "AC" regimen). She appears calm and optimistic about her prognosis with no more than expected mild anxiety about the side effects of chemotherapy. She reports drinking alcohol only on holidays but does report a history of motion sickness. All labs are within normal limits, she has no drug allergies, and is otherwise healthy with no comorbidities.
