Chemotherapy: If You Are Considering It
Questions for the doctor:
Why do I need this treatment?
What drugs will I be taking? How often? For how long? What will they do?
Where will I get treatment? Should I bring anything with me?
Should I do anything to prepare for treatment?
How effective is treatment likely to be, and how will we know if it is working?
Do I need other treatments as well?
What are the risks and side effects? What can I do about side effects?
Will I need to change my diet or activities in any way?
How much will it cost? Will my insurance cover it?
