The side effects you may get depend on the chemotherapy drugs you are having. Different drugs cause different side effects. Some side effects are mild and easily treated. Others can be harder to manage but can often be reduced or helped in some way. Most side effects are short-term and usually stop or gradually go away when chemotherapy is over. Chemotherapy can also make you feel better by relieving the symptoms of the cancer.

Although these side effects may be hard to bear at the time, they will begin to disappear once your treatment is over.
