How will I be given Chemotherapy?
| Chemotherapy is usually given to you:
· by mouth - as tablets or capsules
· by injection - into a muscle or, more commonly, into a vein
· through an intravenous drip - a bag that is hung on a pole and
connected to a narrow piece of tubing which carries the fluid into a
vein in your arm or groin.
You are most likely to be given it by injection into the vein or
through a drip, although you might be given tablets to take as well.
Often these can be taken at home. Even more importantly than most
drugs, these need to be taken when and how your doctor says.
If you are not sure ask your doctor to write down instructions for you.
