Drug or Chemo Therapy - YVONNE

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Vulvar Cancer. Posted on June 18, 2013 View this journey (5 Experiences)

During the chemo procedure, Yvonne had very small veins and had to have a port placed in her chest inorder to receive her chemo treatment once a week. She had to sit each week for about 2 1/2 hours or more depending on the dosage of chemo that was needed for her from week to week for 6 weeks. She is mentally handicapped and she really did not understand what was really happening to her. She just knew that she was sick, so as her brother and her caregiver I had to explain to her everyday almost what was happening or was going to happen to her.
