Can't answer, dear: Seven treatments of the same or different chemos? Has it worked? Are you felling worse because of the chemo or the cancer? More symptomatic like how? Talk openly to your oncologist about your concerns, he/she can answer your questions best. I'm very sort you are not doing well and hope you feel better soon. God bless.
