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.
