My mom (58 years) has breast cancer and has undergone BCT surgery. Now she is being advised for chemo with a port. How safe is it? Doc is suggesting for 4 to 5 chemos. What would be the approximate cost for 4 to 5 chemos.
The oncologist has implanted radiation port in her body already, but now they have decided to go for chemo.
Till the time she has been diagnosed with breast cancer, she was quite healthy and never had any major medical ailment except for normal cold and cough. Even after surgery, she is doing fine.
I understand that immunity system would be damaged by chemo. What kind of changes can we expect in her health from now onwards?
