Before proceeding with any treatment, we explain what side effects may occur. There will also be a plan in place to reduce the likelihood or degree of symptoms and we will manage any symptoms if they develop.

The single most common misconception of cancer treatments is the assumption cancer treatment equals nausea and vomiting. Fortunately, nausea and vomiting during cancer treatment are, for the most part, a thing of the past. Most cancer treatments don’t cause nausea anymore. But for the ones that do, we can almost always prevent nausea or vomiting with nausea-preventing medications. If you experience nausea at all during treatment, it will most likely be mild (like a minor hangover or morning sickness) and it will usually only last for a day or two after treatment.
