Written by experienced chemotherapy and oncology nurses, this book explains how chemotherapy and radiation therapy works, and provides practical suggestions to prevent, minimize or cope with the side effects. Many who enter these treatments have no prior experience with which to be able to cope, but this book aims to provide the information they need to understand and navigate their treatment. The sections on minimizing side-effects such as nausea, hair loss, fatigue and digestive problems many readers will find particularly helpful.
