Side effects, (vomiting and fever) occur after chemotherapy in most of the cases. To avoid such consequences, doctors prescribe immunostimulants and special drugs.

Doctors also apply a special DigniCap cap to prevent hair loss during and after chemo. This cap influences on the scalp with cold. As a result, the blood vessels constrict, so chemotherapy does not reach the hair roots.

In general, the clinic as a clinic, a lot of people, everyone is busy. Queues The translator decided the speed of the queue. Everything is fine. They took only consultations with doctors. I can not say on it their level of professionolism, only on treatment ... In general, it’s normal. В целом клиника как клиника, много людей, все заняты. Очереди. Переводчик решал быстроту очереди. Все нормально. Брали только консультации у врачей. Не могу сказать по ней их уровень профессиолизма, только по лечению... В целом нормально.
