Side Effects May Include

I went to a mandatory chemotherapy education class last week and received this helpful binder, pictured above.

The cover art reminds me of one of my Grandma’s 1970s photo albums.

It’s chock full of helpful information, including all the potential side effects.

And wow!

There are SIDE EFFECTS.

These include: hair loss, numbness and tingling of hands and feet, fatigue, liver dysfunction, kidney dysfunction, bone pain, damaged finger and toenails (possible loss), mouth sores, altered taste sensation, decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, muscle aches, and So. Much. More.

In an ironic twist, there are both constipation and diarrhea listed in the manual.

Well, that’s a fight without a clear winner.
