In brief: NOT Painful

This is a common misconception among lay people.
Chemo is use of drugs. Taking any drug should not be painful. of course if it is an iv injection, there is some short lived discomfort. radiation is use of Rays, they are painless. So try to understand these things than just believing hearsay.
