It changed my life, too. Now I vomit for the better half of a week after chemo. I also get to piss neon pink after doxyrubicin.

I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma and was one of the few young patients at the cancer center I went to. They have some volunteer chaplains that come in and spend time with the patients while they're on chemo. I was feeling slightly worse than normal one day and one of them came up to me and told me the usual "Well at least you have the good kind and since you're young you'll be fine." If I had the strength I would have decked the lady.
