Episode 3: The Chemo Commences

But I can tell you there are consequences for using such a powerful drug cocktail — and I experienced them all. You’ll learn about my neurotoxicity.  About a cholinergic crisis. About the application of atropine. And how I thought I’d seen my last day on my first day of chemo.
