Chemotherapy: just the word can fill you with dread. But maybe, what you think you know about chemo isn't quite true any more..
Treatments have changed, drugs that can help with side effects have improved. Thanks to clinical trials treatments have become more specific and some of the side effects reduced... although for a lot of us the hair loss is still pretty tough.
In this podcast you will meet Dr Craig Carden a Ballarat based Medical Oncologist who will talk you through what you might expect if you're about to undertake your first round of chemotherapy. You'll also meet Oncology Nurses Elizabeth McEncroe and Heather McErvale form St John of God Ballarat Hospital.
