  • This book offers support for those undergoing this common cancer treatment More than one in three people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer during their lives, making chemotherapy one of the most widely used forms of treatment today - or treatments, given that more than 50 different kinds of drugs may be used. With ever-improving survival rates, and recent medical discoveries highlighting the effectiveness of cocktail chemotherapy, this treatment is of key importance in treating - and often curing - cancer. This book by an acclaimed cancer expert looks at what to expect if you have to have chemotherapy. It explains what the treatment is, how the drugs work, and different ways in which they can be given, for example by means of venous lines, an infusion pump (a kind of portable drip which delivers the drug continuously). Quality of life is important in chemotherapy, and this book also looks at side effects, everyday life such as social life and travel, as well as examining exercise and diet that may be helpful, along with a positive attitude and how others may be able to help.
