Let's say you are coding for administration of Aloxi given with the chemo... I would code the Aloxi and the administration with 787.02 (Nausea), then V58.11 (Encounter for antineoplastic chemo), and finally the cancer diagnosis. Although the patient does not currently have nausea, the chemo is emetogenic & nausea is inevitable. You could always use V07.8x (Other Specified Prophalactic or Treatment Measure) as your primary diagnosis if you feel more comfortable. Good luck!
