My husband has had four cycles of chemotherapy, he has struggled with extreme tiredness, sore mouth with cold sores and nose bleeds. Is this a common reaction?

Hi Ethelburga

Read your profile  and see its lung cancer, what chemo are they on.

Tiredness,  sore mouth and cold sores was side effects of my chemo, never had nose bleeds but bleeding gums.

Hope  others pop in   some chemo are very harsh.
