1. Changes in taste: Patients' food tastes vary during and after treatment with chemotherapy medicines. It's possible that the food will taste dull or metallic.
  2. Constipation and pain: The medications have the potential to cause constipation and pain. Dietary modifications before and after gallbladder cancer chemotherapy may contribute to the disease.
  3. Diarrhea: When chemotherapy medications are administered to treat gallbladder cancer, they have a direct effect on the intestinal cells. The stomach feels upset as a result of this.
  4. Nausea and Vomiting: Gallbladder cancer chemotherapy causes dizziness and tiredness both during and after treatment. This weakness can cause vomiting in certain people.
  5. Exhaustion- Chemotherapeutic medications can produce a lot of fatigue and exhaustion both during and after treatment.
  1. Skin problems: These medicines cause significant skin damage. During and after treatment with chemotherapy medicines, patients frequently report skin peeling, dryness, and itching.
  2. Hair loss: The damage to the hair follicles is determined by the chemotherapy and drug dosage. Hair loss usually starts within the first two weeks of the first cycle and continues until the patient has recovered entirely.
  3. A decrease in the number of white blood cells: The immune system of the body is made up of white blood cells, which protect the body from infections and disorders. When malignant cells are destroyed, healthy cells, including white blood cells, are also destroyed. As a result of the lower white blood cell count, the person becomes more susceptible to infections.
  4. Anemia is caused by damage to the red blood cells, which produces dizziness, fatigue, and other symptoms. This weakness frequently persists even after treatment.
  5. Low blood platelet count: A low platelet count can make blood clotting harder. It also causes easy bruising and bleeding.
  6. Effect on kidney- Chemotherapeutic medications have an effect on the kidneys as well, producing problems with waste filtering out of the body, which leads to renal failure.
  7. Loss of appetite: The medications alter the patient's appetite. They lose their regular appetite, and their food intake diminishes, resulting in weight loss.
  8. Discoloration of nails -Chemotherapeutic medicines frequently induce inflammation and discolouration of the nails.
  9. Mouth sores: Mouth sores on the tongue, lips, gums, or throat can make chewing and swallowing difficult. Mucositis is the medical term for this illness. Oral mucositis, a disorder characterised by mouth sores on the lips, tongue, gums, and throat, is a typical effect of chemotherapy that can occur up to two weeks after treatment begins. Dry lips are another side effect of these medications.
  10. Neuropathy -Chemotherapy medications can cause neuropathy, which is a typical adverse effect. Neuropathy, a syndrome characterised by tingling and numbness in the hands and feet, is a typical side effect of chemotherapy medicines used to treat gallbladder cancer.
  11. Heart problems- Chemotherapeutic medicines have the potential to produce abnormalities in the heart rhythm and blood pressure. This causes heart problems such as artery enlargement, heart blockages, and, in the worst-case scenario, a heart attack. Chemotherapeutic medicines used to treat gallbladder cancer might create abnormalities in heart rhythm and blood pressure, which can raise the risk of cardiac issues.
  12. Menstrual problems- Women who are taking chemotherapy medications for gallbladder cancer may have irregular periods and unusual bleeding. Because women are more likely to develop gallbladder cancer, one of the most common adverse effects of chemotherapy for gallbladder cancer is menstruation problems.
