Re: Chemotherapy - What to Expect?

Star,
Do you know what type of chemo your mother will be on? As Dazed pointed out, the effects vary widely depending on which chemotherapy drug is used.

The thought of chemotherapy can be frightening, but there are many medications on the market these days to reduce or even eliminate most of the side effects.
