In brief: Medication

Your oncologist will put you on prophylactic medication to counter some of the possible side effects from treatment.
For example anti nausea med for nausea, anti diarrhea med etc. Maintain a healthy diet. Avoid sick contacts.

In brief: Quite a Lot

Follow doctors instructions closely- diet (everything cooked-nothing raw); nausea control (use meds as instructed before getting nauseous); proper fluid intake (to prevent dehydration); infection precautions (minimise contacts, hand sanitizers); daytime power naps or rests; daily light exercise/walking; use diarrhea meds aggressively; biotene/baking soda oral rinses; call for fevers immediately.
