Chemotherapy medications are toxic. When used correctly, these toxins kill the cancer cells in your body. However, chemotherapy drugs can also kill healthy cells in your body and make you very ill. You are already vulnerable to illness because of your cancer and previous cancer treatments, and an overdose of chemotherapy medication can make you very sick.
Potential Health Consequences of a Chemo Overdose
The specific effects of a chemotherapy overdose depend on the chemo drugs being used and the amount of medication administered. The effects may include:
- Significant pain
- Organ damage
- Low blood platelet counts
The effects of a chemotherapy overdose are not the same as typical chemotherapy side effects. The consequences of a chemo overdose can be much more severe. It is also very distressing because it never should have happened. Therefore, it is important to consider pursuing a chemo overdose lawsuit to protect your rights and to help protect future cancer patients.
