Saw something on TV a little while ago that there is a new study that says that many do not get the right amount of their chemo. What it said basically, was that chemo is/has been administered not based on actual weight but rather on 'ideal' weight.
I was surprised at the info as when I did chemo 4 yrs ago, I was weighed everytime on the way back to my cubicle and was told (I asked 'Why?") it was so the pharmacist could properly prepare what was right for me. Made sense to me. (They had checked my height the first time, height seldom changes LOL.)
Anyone 'hear/see/read' this or were you weighed? Thoughts?
