Pain from chemo

I asked what kind of pain would I expect? He said everybody's different. It's hard, you might get this, you might get that, so you can't really know but you can expect one of many things. I said, any chance of passing them all up. He laughs. He said you don't know what you're going to get, but it won't be bad, which they weren't, to be honest with you. You sleep a lot. They keep coming in, even during the night, they gotta keep putting IVs in and your chemotherapy. You get four doses. It takes two hours for one dose to go all the way through..
