Chemotherapy for bile duct cancer


Chemotherapy for bile duct cancer

We understand the potential side effects of chemotherapy are unpleasant and may include nausea, vomiting, hair loss and mouth sores. Your care team may offer multiple measures to help reduce or moderate chemotherapy-related symptoms.

Prior to receiving chemotherapy for bile duct cancer, you may receive pre-medications to help make symptoms more tolerable.

During chemotherapy, your care team may offer various supportive care services to ease side effects. For example, our naturopathic clinicians may suggest supplements to reduce nausea. Also, a mind-body therapist may recommend certain techniques to help you relax and feel less anxious during your bile duct cancer chemotherapy treatments.
