Questions You should Ask Your Doctor before Chemotherapy

Before you begin chemotherapy – Chemotherapy can help treat cancer, but it can also have a host of side effects. Here are a few questions that you should ask your doctor before treatment starts.

  • How will I know if the chemotherapy is working, and how will it help my prognosis?
  • How long will my treatments last?
  • What side effects can I expect, and how can I manage them?
  • Will any side effects subside after the chemotherapy has ended, or are they permanent?
  • Can I still live a normal life while on chemo?
  • Can I go to work (or school)?
  • How can I physically and mentally prepare for chemotherapy?
