I’ve had chemotherapy twice with a 7 year gap. The first time was a lonely and pretty traumatic experience. However, the second time was in a dedicated chemotherapy unit. There were individual bright rooms furnished in purples, peaceful and serene artwork on the walls, with comfortable recliners for the patient and chairs for visitors. There was an option to be alone or chat with others in the unit, making the whole experience more relaxed, easier to cope with and less traumatic. The unit didn’t have a ‘hospital’ smell and drinks and snacks were offered. Unfortunately, chemotherapy is debilitating but, in my experience, the environment and surrounding while undergoing the treatment made a huge difference to getting through it.
