Impact Caused When Delaying Chemotherapy?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Chemotherapy is a method of treatment for malignant conditions or abnormal tissue growth. This treatment is done by applying, consuming, injecting or entering chemotherapy drugs into the body cavity to inhibit the growth of abnormal tissue.
Regarding your question, in fact the same as other treatments in general, treatment that is not done routinely would not be optimal results, especially if the delay is 6 months. It's not impossible, it's the same as you repeat chemotherapy from the start. The worst impact besides the optimal treatment is that the disease is getting worse. Then regarding drugs that can be consumed as a substitute for chemotherapy, unfortunately no. Chemotherapy itself is often disliked by patients because of the various side effects it has. So if there is a drug that can be consumed as a substitute for chemotherapy, of course it will be used first.
So our advice is that you should consult your doctor about how well you can, if you can continue chemotherapy elsewhere, or indeed the treatment should be stopped before your condition allows it to commit. Meanwhile, keep on living a healthy lifestyle, managing stress well and getting enough rest. So, hopefully answering your question.
