Chemotherapy can be accompanied by some side effects, including some particularly unpleasant ones like nausea, vomiting and hair loss although the severity will depend on which drugs are used. Your doctor should inform you of any side effects that you should particularly watch out for, such as developing a fever.
Some tips that may help you to cope include:
- Eat small meals regularly - switching to a liquid based diet may be helpful
- Sucking ice cubes can help increase fluid intake
- Take it easy - you may not have the energy any more to do your normal routine of exercise and housework
- Your doctor may prescribe you some anti-emetic drugs if vomiting is a problem.
