How Does Chemo Effect Asthma And Copd?

Answer

This is an impossible question to answer with 100% certainty; each of us has her own chemo side effects, and while some can be predicted with reasonable certainty (e.g., hair loss), others may be totally unexpected. The best you can do to prepare is to make sure your oncologist knows about ALL of your current health issues: chronic conditions, allergies, etc. That way s/he can look at possible drug interactions, and adjust either the chemo itself; or be ready with side effect drugs. Good luck - if you haven't read our getting ready for chemo series yet, you might find it helpful. PJH
