Whilst I was receiving my chemo one day with headphones on I actually thought it’d be brilliant idea to tell people how chemo feels and patient views but this is brilliant already. I had T4 N1 with Folfox. The care given was amazing. Neuropathy is really bad though. I’m just happy now to be able to refer back to family, friends etc what treatment was and how bad/good it was. Thanks and thanks again. All credit to you two. Much appreciated. Wayne ( no symptoms at all) Ryan 😂👍👍👍
Clear and informative
A great podcast so far. Very clear and informative on specific drugs and aspects of treatment that cancer patients or their family may not know and that they may not be able to ask at this time. Well done on Anne Marie and Michelle for creating a podcast that will help patients and families who no doubt have lots of questions.
