Getting Help with Chemotherapy

One of the treatments available to people suffering from mesothelioma is chemotherapy. This procedure is commonly used on people with various cancers. Although the end result can be very beneficial, the steps along the way of chemotherapy treatment can take a hard toll on the body. Being aware of the probable side effects and knowing tips on how to relieve some of those effects is good way to mentally prepare for the journey ahead.

Getting a Little Help

It is very common for mesothelioma patients undergoing chemotherapy to feel listless, tired, and even exhausted. Ask a family member or friend to drive you to your chemotherapy appointment. He or she can serve as a source for moral support as well as a safe ride home.

Plan Your Day in Advance

The more rest you get after a round of chemotherapy, the better. This means avoiding or minimizing house chores and tasks. However, many doctors do recommend very light exercise like a short walk to help lessen fatigue. The key is to avoid exertion and stress.

Nausea and Vomiting

Of the most common side effects of mesothelioma chemotherapy are nausea and vomiting. Antiemetics are drugs that help reduce nausea and vomiting and may be prescribed by your doctor depending on your body’s particular reactions. Techniques that other mesothelioma chemotherapy patients have used in the past to reduce nausea and vomiting include biofeedback and progressive muscle relaxation.
