What is chemotherapy?

 

The cells of the body constantly divide and grow as a part of the body processes. When an individual is affected by cancer, cell reproduction becomes abnormal and uncontrolled. The uncontrolled reproduction of cells results in more cell creation within the same space. This later inhabits the place of the user cells in the region. The drugs used in the process of chemotherapy are very effective against stopping the cancer cells from growing and reproducing. Chemotherapy uses a single drug injection or a combination of multiple drugs. The chemotherapy treatment can be done either by injecting the drug in the blood, or they can be applied specifically to the cancer-prone regions within the body.

The drugs used in chemotherapy can help in the following ways:

  1. Cy-totoxic drugs prevent cell division (mitosis impairment).
  2. The drugs target the food source of the affected cells that reside in the form of hormones and enzymes which serve as their growth factors.
  3. Targets the apoptosis which is commonly the suicide cells of cancer.
  4. The drugs interfere with the growth of the new blood vessels that supply a tumor and make it starve.

Chemotherapy’s effectiveness in stopping the oxygen flow and the blood flow to the tumor is under controversy in the present day. Stopping the blood flow is a better alternative than making the cells starve. This can cause effective recovery and simultaneously aid the treatment by reducing the chances of metastasis. Scientists say that the effective treatment of cancer cells can be done by resisting the blood flow towards them and targeting the protein supply too.

The cells affected with cancer usually grow at a faster rate. The chemotherapy drugs are effective in killing the cells at the same rate as they grow. As the drugs circulate the whole body, there can be a significant effect caused to the other healthy cells too. Damaging the healthy cells in the human body through chemotherapy drugs impose several side effects on the body that shows visible signs. The normal cells that are damaged through the chemotherapy drugs are mainly the cells in the bone marrow that aids blood formation, hair follicles, and cells present in the reproductive system, digestive tract, and mouth. Some of the drugs cause damage to the kidneys, heart, lungs, bladder, and the central nervous system. Patients can also take alternative medicines along with the chemotherapy sessions to protect the healthy cells from the side effects. The chemotherapy levels are usually high for the treatment of cancer while trying to minimize the side effects. The doctors also avoid increased drug consumption at the same time that can cause the same side effects. The common side effects caused by chemotherapy are as follows:

 

  1. Infections.
  2. Hair Loss.
  3. Fatigue.
  4. Changes in the appetite.
  5. Easy bleeding and bruising.
  6. Constipation.
  7. Anemia.
  8. Diarrhea.
  9. Vomiting.
  10. Nausea.
  11. Mood swings.
  12. Fertility issues.
  13. Change in weight.
  14. Libido and sexual dysfunction.
  15. Throat, mouth, and tongue pain and soar while swallowing.
  16. Change of nail color and dry.
  17. Muscle issues like pain, tingling, and numbing.
  18. Affects the level of concentration and loses focus.
  19. Kidney issues are affecting the urine and bladder.

Chemotherapy drugs are often used to provide the cancer-prone patients with an ease from the symptoms caused by cancer. This type of application is termed as palliation or palliative chemotherapy. At an advanced stage of cancer where the cancer cells have spread rapidly beyond control to other parts from their point of origin, the medical professionals aim to bring an upgrade to the quality of the lifestyle and help the patient feel better and comfortable. These chemotherapy drugs are often effective in shrinking tumors and relieving the pain and pressure caused by it on the body.

Home treatments are always the best and suitable for people who are undergoing chemotherapy sessions. They can be more relaxed among their loved ones. This is the time when one must trust Care24 to their best and be rest assured that the treatments are under the safe hands of the professionals.

  • chemotherapy nurse , Nursing Care for Chemotherapy  Worst!!! I am paying for professional services and the attendant is not professional.

  • chemotherapy nurse , Nursing Care for Chemotherapy  We had a ridiculously pathetic experience with them. Took an attendant service, a 10 day offer (rs 600 instead of their regular fee of rs 800), for my mother who had undergone an knee replacement surgery. In six days, 4 different attendants were assigned for no fault of ours. We had terrible experience going through the back-end team trying to explain the importance of sending only one attendant and not a different one every new day. The last person assigned wanted to leave by 5pm even though the timings were from 8am to 8pm. With this many other terrible instances in these 6 days, we had no option but to cancel the services. The back-end team were utterly useless in understanding the importance of having only one person assigned. They kept insisting that we pay for 800rs per day for 6 day and offer of rs 600 per day would be invalid. The management should look into this scam and take immediate action on the team. Note: Even though we wanted the services, we were forced to abandon it with no fault of ours. The back-end team has absolute disregard for the grievances of the client.

  • chemotherapy nurse , Nursing Care for Chemotherapy  Unqualified office staff, when you call to clarify something. Many times they don't understand the question. They are not trained well. The customer care staff needs an upgraded system, where notes are fed into the system. So you don't need someone else calling up and giving you the same info. The caretaker is not trained well. If they are looking after an elderly person, they should know that they have to be in the best of health to look after my mother. She ended not making a meal for my mother and my neighbour had to provide it. If the caretaker is not well she should have asked for a replacement asap and not waited. It is shocking, we have paid a huge amount of money for this service and I am absolutely unhappy. Please do not call for caretaker's from Care24. As long as they are getting their money. They care a damn!!! Worst service providers.

  • chemotherapy nurse , Nursing Care for Chemotherapy  Most horrible services. Please do not ask for help from these people, they will talk sweet and then at the last moment there will be no shows from the caretaker. I had to go through this not once but twice the caretaker did not turn up. Request you all to not depend on these people as we are leaving our homes and letting them into our lives, the least they can do is inform and provide a replacement, but neither of it happened and they expect me to pay registration fees of RS,1000
