This problem has been coming and going for a while. For want of a small item, hospitals and clinics are brought to their knees.
We always thought when a patient could withstand chemotherapy (both physically- and with no illness that would impede the function), we should provide these chemicals. As a last ditch effort to save the patient and improve the quality of life. (Just so you know, I didn’t abide that sentiment. I demanded they stop this ridiculous effort for my dad some 30 years ago; with the combination of leukemia, lymphoma, and sarcoma, it was clear that there was no cocktail that would work for all three- and any treatment would render the other diseases worse.)
If you mention chemotherapy, our first mental response is often: Nausea. If I ate potatoes, I’d say it’s like “meat and potatoes”. But, just like I avoid potatoes, there are folks trying to insure that chemo is NOT a hand-in-hand companion to nausea. And, while they’re at it, eliminating morning sickness for pregnant ladies would be another tremendous benefit.
