Due to my condition, I must do breast cancer chemotherapy from my doctor. My family supports my decision. But I am worried about the side effects. What do I expect?

The side effects of chemo are normally temporary and controllable. Chemotherapy affects women in different ways, and two people on the same drugs may experience different reactions during the course of the treatment. Chemotherapy drugs temporarily affect number of healthy blood cells like red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets in the body. Not having sufficient white blood cells often increases your chances of contracting an infection. Other symptoms include anaemia, bruising and bleeding, and hair loss.
