Chemotherapy: If You Are Considering It

Questions for the doctor:

  • Why do I need this treatment?

  • What drugs will I be taking? How often? For how long? What will they do?

  • Where will I get treatment? Should I bring anything with me?

  • Should I do anything to prepare for treatment?

  • How effective is treatment likely to be, and how will we know if it is working?

  • Do I need other treatments as well?

  • What are the risks and side effects? What can I do about side effects?

  • Will I need to change my diet or activities in any way?

  • How much will it cost? Will my insurance cover it?
