Chemo side effects: Exact side effects depend on the specific combination of drugs your oncologist is using, but generally you can see the following: lack of energy/extreme fatigue, nausea, vomiting, low blood counts which can increase your risk of other infections, diarrhea, sore mouth sometimes with ulcers, thinning or loss of hair. Your doc can give you some meds to help with some side effects but not all.
