My mom will be going through chemotherapy. What can I expect to happen, and how to make her comfortable?

Report as

My mom has done chemo 3 times. Every time was different. She lost all her hair and had lots of energy the first and second time. The third time, she was sick and weak for awhile but after awhile she was doing much better. You just need to be there for her and bair with her moods because they will be up and down throughout the whole process.

She might get sick afterwards for a while and be tired. All you can really do is just be their for her if she needs anything. You are a good kid looking after your mother. I hope she feels better, good luck to both of you.

I suggest that she doesnt do that. That therapy does not work because it doesnt treat the cause of the problem.
I suggest alternative healing methods only!
If you care for & love her let her know about this. & do some research behind altenative medicine asap to get her health back to normal.

With the chemo she will lose her hair & people feel worse off than they were prior to it. Hope you listen. Good luck

Im glad it didnt make things worse. But research has shown over & over again the effectiveness of alternative methods of healing with NO side effects whats so ever compared to conventional medicine which treat the problem NOT the cause!
Please undertand the difference.

Marilee it might not be too bad or it could be the pits for you both. I suggest you have anything on hand she may ask for. A fan if she is hot, an extra blanket if she is cold. Cold and hot drinks. Are you grown? If not you might ask neighbors or the church ladies to bring meals in once in awhile. You get the idea. If you need help you can ask me. I run a support group for families and friends of kids with cancer. I can at least listen to you.

Be there for her, help her through her good times and bad. She will probably lose her hair and be nauseated at times. It will help her greatly just knowing you are there for her
