    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    My mom's first three days after her first chemo treatment (mid-Feb) were painless. Since then, she's experienced painful constipation, diarrhea and nausea twice, each bout lasting for two days or more. Her doctor has given her a drug that works well for the constipation, but the last bout of nausea and exhaustion was difficult physically and mentally. She has five more treatments to go.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
