i had a molar pregnancy in 1998. I recieved iv chemo therapy and Im wondering what loyeng term side effects come from it? For example my hair falls out (not much but more then average) and im always tired. I can wake up and be tired 3-4 hours later. I am cancer free for 10 years now so I have no idea what type of dr you go to. I did hear with radiation chemo you have to wait 5 years before donating blood but with iv chemo you can not donate blood ever. Can someone help me here? Maybe if you had iv chemo if you can tell me if you had side effects after completion of iv therapy?

Dear carolyn17603,

The easiest way to locate other CSN members with similar experiences is to type keywords (such as "IV chemo," "long-term side effects chemo," "chemotherapy tiredness," etc.) on the search bar at the top of the home page. You can refine your search by clicking on the “Advance search” link listed underneath the search field. The major categories of content on CSN are blogs, discussion boards, “About Me” pages, etc. For example, if you are looking for a specific resource on the Resource Library, you can limit your search to resources only by clicking on the "resource" and "advanced search" button at the bottom of the "advanced search" box. Remember that you must be logged on if you want to post anything on a discussion boards, view personal pages, use the chat room, etc.

Cordially,
Your CSN Staff
