What are the side effects of stem cell treatments for cancer?

ANSWER

If you’re being treated with your own stem cells, you may have high-dose chemotherapy first. This can cause side effects. What and how severe they are depend on the dose: You might have nausea, vomiting, fatigue, bleeding or a severe infection. Advances in cancer treatment can make them easier to live with.
