In brief: Depends
What you get from any chemotherapy depends greatly on the type of cancer and the stage, so your question cannot be answered.
My advise is that you discuss the benefit vs. Side effects of any therapy with your doc before you agree to get it. It is your right and also your responsibility as patient.
