What makes chemo so awful! Part 3 of my Story

The one thing most people know about cancer is that chemotherapy is bloody difficult, but what makes it so hard? The way it makes you feel? The fact it dominates your life for months? Or having toxic chemicals pumped in to your body?

All of these things make chemo one of the toughest medical treatments to endure but as much as it might seem like the devils work it’s also a miracle cure for a disease that kills quickly and with no mercy.

I wanted to give a real and honest insight in to what it’s like to go through chemotherapy and this video tells my chemo story. Believe it or not its not all bad!

  1. You are such an inspiration Audrey and so positive. Chemo IS awful but you are so right, you have to be kind to yourself and it does pass. I had 2 hospital admissions during my 4 rounds of chemo as my white blood cell count went to zero and I contracted infections that my body couldn’t fight on its own. Your team of medical staff are totally there to support you so don’t be afraid to lift the phone, there’s no such thing as a daft question. Our bodies are amazing, they recover from chemo quickly so all of you undergoing this now, stay positive and strong and keep fighting. There IS light at the end of the chemo tunnel. Love to you all.
