Chemotherapy - Side Effects
Different chemotherapy drugs may cause different side effects.
- People react differently to treatment – some people have very few side effects while others have more.
- Almost all side effects are short term and gradually disappear once the treatment stops.
- It is very important to tell your nurse or doctor if treatment is making you feel unwell.
- Changes can be made during treatment that can help reduce the side effects.
