In brief: Discuss with your MD
Chemotherapy medications often have many "scary" side effects.
Fortunately most side effects are temporary. However, you should discuss your specific concerns with your oncologist as he/she knows these medications best. Additionally, one should also "weigh" the risks vs. The benefits.
