Calintay Posted December 20, 2004 Share Posted December 20, 2004 My mom went for chemo and radiation for the first time today. I am wondering if all those horrible stories about chemo are true. Do people really get very sick and weak? Also my mom is already tiny losing weight may not be to good any suggestions on how to help her to keep her weight up? What are other side effects can chemo and radiation have? Any advice that a cancer patient has to help me to help my mother and not "annoy" her will be helpful. What should I expect? She has 5 weeks radiation and chemo treatment weeks 1 and 5. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
