My girlfriend has just been diagnosed with cancer in the brain.
My girlfriend has just been diagnosed with cancer in the brain, I don't know what type it is. She is having chemotherapy at the moment. I just want to know what side affects she will have, she sometime passes out and feels sick and a now she can't feel her legs after passing out.
It is difficult to predict exactly what side-effects she will have because different people react to the treatment in different ways. The most common side-effects are nausea, vomiting, tiredness, loss of appetite and loss of hair. She will be given a list of things to look out for that need urgent medical attention, such as a high temperature and bleeding. She will also be given a telephone number to ring for advice that is available 24 hours a day. That way you will always have support should you need it. I really wish her all the best.
