I had chemotherapy regularly for quite a while to treat my nerve and muscle wasting illness. I would finish the treatment, rest for about 5 days and get ready for the next lot. It made me personally so dreadfully ill, but the usual sickness and exhaustion and all of the horrid bits I though were worth taking the chance on at the time. I was actually in a whirl not knowing what was happening to my body. Needless to say the chemo didn't work for me.
Having said that, as I always advocate, the choice should always be one made by the patient, given all of the relevant information. I unfortunately wasn't given much time to take it in, as they were classing my condition the same as the one that took my beautiful brother's life, and time was of the essence. It was when they got my doses wrong and overmedicated me on it, that I literally pulled the plug on them and the treatment.
It wasn't determined that it had done any good anyway in my case, but the reason I am telling you this Glojer is because the choices are there. I am so very pleased that your darling man doesn't have to have it though, and that he will be checked so very often for anything going wrong. Marvellous I think.
Take care my friends
