How will I feel during the treatment?

Reading time: 1 min

The main discomforts during treatment with intravenous chemotherapy are those related to the injection, necessary for the administration of the drug, or the fatigue of being in the day hospital. Sometimes, chills or nausea may also be felt.

If chemotherapy is taken orally, one of the most common immediate sensations is usually nausea or difficulty swallowing. In these cases, the medical team will provide some recommendations to prevent this occurring or to minimise its effects. For example, it may suggest your chemotherapy medication can be crushed, diluted or swallowed whole.
