Synopsis: Chemotherapy is often the first treatment given to the thousands of people who face cancer, and this helpful and much-needed guide provides the information that chemotherapy patients desperately need to help them understand, adjust and feel better about the treatments they are having. The authors are both experienced chemotherapy nurses, and they explain how it works, how it is administered, how it feels, and how to prevent, reduce or manage the side effects of chemotherapy - nausea, hair loss, digestive problems, and fatigue. Clearly written, friendly and informed, the emphasis is always on what readers can do to minimize discomfort and enhance healing.
Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: Keep drinking. Some people, afraid that they'll feel nauseated from their chemotherapy, don't eat or drink before their treatment. Since today's anti-nausea medications are so successful in preventing nausea, this really is not necessary. In fact, eating and drinking normally will help keep your body fluids up and will help make your IV easier to start.
