It varies/depends on: It depends on your circumstances. Your doctor or nurse will educate you about what they are going to do to you. Just go with an open mind, it should be an educational experience. If they give you chemotherapy during this 'session', you may also be medicated with anti-nausea medication before chemo is given. This can sometimes make you sleepy.
