A:It is unfortunate that your child is not tolerating chemotherapy. However, this is very common in patients with chemotherapy. In chemotherapy, drugs that are used kill rapidly multiplying cells. In a normal human beingsome of the most rapidly multiplying cells are found in the intestinal tract from our mouth all the way down to our colon. The cells on the lining called mucosa get killed causing (nausea, vomiting, lose motions). At the completion of chemotherapy this normally reverts back. The time varies from patient to patient and the kind of drug used. The current prognosis as per the latest text book of Harrisons principles of internal medicine 15th Edition 80% five year survival with effective treatment.
