Today's blog is really to share a resource to share. There is a lot of written information about managing chemotherapy side effects, but this is the first video that I have seen. Personally, I prefer to read than to watch/listen, but I know we have different preferences, and this is quite good.

This is from ASCO's Cancer Net:

 

Managing Side Effects of Chemotherapy, with Jyoti D. Patel, MD
As cancer treatment works to get rid of the cancer, the resulting side effects can often be hard to manage. This is especially true for chemotherapy. Even though side effects are different for every person, common ones include fatigue, nausea and vomiting, hair loss, loss of appetite, and diarrhea. Many patients continue with their life activities while coping with these side effects.

But how can a person manage all that? Dr. Jyoti Patel provides some insight.

Jyoti Patel, MD, is a thoracic medical oncologist at Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University and Cancer.Net Associate Editor for lung cancer. In this video, she shares some of the medical advances to help patients manage these side effects and practical tips on how to talk with your health care team about your concerns. share on twitter
