Side-Effects Management

When patients are newly diagnosed with cancer, their focus is on getting the cancer out of their bodies. They may not be listening as well as they might under less stressful circumstances. This can result in an inability to absorb and comprehend all the information provided to them related to side effects from various treatments.
Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) is an unwanted side-effect of many chemotherapy drug treatments today. Complementary or alternative therapies, such as ginger, used in conjunction with other anti-emetic drugs have been shown to be promising in the battle to reduce nausea associated with chemotherapy treatment.
When someone is diagnosed with cancer, they are informed of the various “expected” side effects they will likely experience as they travel through their cancer treatment experience. Whether it is fatigue, peripheral neuropathy, weight gain, cognitive functioning problems, sexual dysfunction, hair loss, etc , patients are expected to accept these side effects as part of the hand they have been dealt.
