Written in a warm and supportive tone by experienced oncology nurses Judith McKay and Nancee Hirano, this guide lets you know what to expect at each stage of treatment and tells you exactly what you can do to prevent or minimize side effects. Learn how to maintain good nutrition, get emotional support, and reduce stress throughout the treatment process. Discover coping strategies for dealing with hair loss, fatigue, nausea, lower gastrointestinal problems, skin changes, and changes in sexuality and fertility. Information about intravenous medications helps you know what to expect when you start chemotherapy.

The current edition of this guide to the chemotherapy process has been expanded to explain how radiation therapy is used to fight cancer and how it affects your body. A new chapter has also been included on bone marrow transplants.
