I had stage 4 cancer and had radiotherapy, chemotherapy and internal radiotherapy i was told no clear signs of cancer but I had so much pain. So had more test and a biopsy showed it came back after 2mths. So now starting chemotherapy again. Just wandering what to expect??
I'm sorry that no one in the group has been able to come forward and tell you about their experiences with chemotherapy, especially as I recommended that you joined the group.
While you're waiting to see if you get any replies I found that if you type 'chemotherapy' into the search bar at the top of the page you'll find a number of previous posts on this topic. You could have a look through those and respond to any of the more recent ones if you felt the poster could help you further.
I have had a look around the Macmillan site and found this general information for you about chemotherapy which might help answer some of your questions. You could also post in the ask a nurse section of the community and one of the specialist nurses will aim to reply within 2 working days.
When you have a minute, it would be really useful if you could pop something about your journey so far into your profile as it really helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
All the best with your treatment
