    One thing Doctors don't usually tell you about cancer: The treatments make you far sicker than the cancer will (usually - unless it is very far along).

    I hear this has come a long way even in the last two years. But in general the treatments are pretty hellish. Radiotherapy is hard emotionally, because nobody can go near the patient while the treatment is being given (and it can get worse but I won't go into details). Chemo is just plain awful.
