Chemo side effects : Side effects of chemo include fatigue and headache, but when symptoms are severe, it's always important to contact your oncologist's office and at LEAST discuss it with the nurse and ask her to ask the doctor about it . They might want to check blood counts or have mom come in for an exam , and certainly she needs medication to feel better. Don't suffer in silence, it could be serious! Can't tell!
