In brief: Which chemo?

It really depends on which chemo you will be receiving.
There is a wide variety. Some can leave you with numbness in your fingers and toes, others contribute to infertility, and many contribute to a higher lifetime risk of developing new skin cancer with sun exposure. Your medical oncologist should be an excellent resource for this question.
