Chemo Chat

This seems to differ in hospital areas, so please bear in mind this was my experience.

Before my first Chemo we had a "Chemo-Chat".  This was great and very reassuring.  I had a list to fill in before going to highlight the things that mattered most to me.  My Hubby and I had a lovely chat with a super nurse who went through everything with us and we were very relieved to know that for any side effect that occurred, it could be countered with another drug.  I know chugging down another drug is not ideal, but to my mind, it seriously doesn't matter considering the amount of toxic stuff that Chemo is made up off.  I would rather take the drugs and be side-affect free.  The nurse also explained how long the process takes and what the cycles are etc etc.  It was a very informative session.
