Patient discussion about chemo
Q. what are the side affects of chemotherapy?
Q. How do doctors know what chemo meds to prescribe? Do they take a piece of the cancer tumor and lab it to see what chemo drugs kill that specific cancer tumor cells. Or do they randomly figure these meds should respond to these cells? I understand that the doctors put a patient through killing all cells which may be better.
Although many can get one type of cancer, each reacts differently in each individual depending on their immune system, age, and lifestyle. so each chemo also reacts different in people.
Q. Getting prepared for chemo Hi, I have breast cancer, and I’m planned to start chemotherapy in a short time. Do you have any advice how should I prepare for it? What to buy? The anti-emesis drugs are already waiting- any other thing I should get?
