As far as I know, it depends on the person. Each person has different chemotherapy and reacts differently to it. My dad just finished his chemo and it got bad towards the end. He got very weak and started to lose his hair. He was also hospitalized a few times. It was a tough time but I always reminded myself that this was the treatment making him sick, not the cancer so he would recover. I hope this helps! Thinking positive thoughts for you!
