Breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, says Dr. David Margileth, will likely be able to maintain their current levels of activity. While fatigue is common, activity during treatment is important. Even with aggressive chemotherapies, Dr. Margileth asserts, women are able to work 80% of the time, if not more, while undergoing their chemotherapy regimen. Some women experience no fatigue; some experience minimal fatigue. Dr. Margileth's recommendation is to adjust your current lifestyle as needed once chemotherapy starts, but not to anticipate any drastic changes in your day-to-day life. Listen to this video as Dr. Margileth explains what to expect in your day-to-day life while undergoing chemotherapy.

Many women are concerned with the side effects of chemotherapy. While in the past, short-term side effects such as nausea and mouth sores were common side effects of chemotherapy, these are much less of an issue today. Prior to beginning chemotherapy, you'll receive an anti nausea medication and, if you will be on a regimen that will make your white blood cell counts low, you will also be given a medication intravenously to keep your white counts normal, keeping your risk of infection low. Other side effects may include hair loss, tingling or numbing (though you should tell your doctor if this occurs to be sure that nerve damage is not an issue), and fatigue. Most women, Dr. Margileth says, are pleasantly surprised that chemotherapy is not as awful as they had originally thought. Hear more about short-term chemotherapy side effects in this video.
