Chemotherapy (cont.)

Missing a Dose of Chemotherapy?

In general, it is not good to skip a chemotherapy treatment. Previous reported benefits to a chemotherapy schedule may not be achieved if the patient cannot stay on schedule. Sometimes your doctor or nurse may change your chemotherapy schedule. This can be due to side effects you are having. If this happens, your doctor or nurse will explain what to do and when to start treatment again.
