CHEMOTHERAPY... LORD HAVE MERCY! First off the doctor NEVER told me the Chemo was going to be for 6 months, initially he said 4 months the most! -__- THEN he never offered or told me about getting catheter! Which made all 6 months of my chemo therapy a living XXX! I was given Chemo through I.V, I was receiving ABVD and that is one of the most strongest combinations of Chemo a person can get, which ended up damaging my veins! Made my veins TREMBLE which caused HORRIBLE PAIN through out my arm where I received the Chemo Therapy. My doctor was later changed ( I guess because of his horrible ways!) I was changed to another doctor which helped me SO MUCH, gave me medication to make everything better. (A lot of nausea, and pain!) during the last month (Last 2 sessions) of Chemo my veins where so dried put and damaged I had to get a Pic-Line inserted on my right arm, which made Chemo SO MUCH better for me... If I would of known ahead of time, I would of gotten it in the first place!
