Side Effects Of Chemotherapy For People Around Him?
, I want to ask. Are there any side effects from chemotherapy for others around the sufferer? For example, do people who accompany chemotherapy be infected during chemotherapy? Thanks
Hello Ame29, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Chemotherapy is a therapy that aims to kill cancer cells in the body by using special drugs. The use of this drug even though intended to kill cancer cells, can still provide side effects in the form of damage to normal cells and the side effects caused by this can not be transmitted and can only occur in people who are undergoing chemotherapy alone.
Side effects that are very often caused when someone undergoing chemotherapy are:
Nausea and vomiting
Become more easily bruised or bleeding
Become more susceptible to infection
Diarrhea or constipation
The skin becomes dry and changes color
Urinary and kidney disorders
If someone is undergoing chemotherapy, do not worry to accompany him because these side effects will not be contagious. However, if you are suffering from a contagious disease (such as flu, tuberculosis), it is strongly recommended not to accompany a person who is undergoing chemotherapy because that person is very vulnerable to contracting it.
I hope this helps.
