Why should you have: There is little reason to have pain during chemo? it is a myth that some ignorant people can pass on to you. Giving chemotherapy is like taking intravenous fluids via your vein. Chemo does not hurt although placing a needle in the vein does sting for a few minutes, but chemo itself is painless!
