I have just recently passed d local board exam and i immediately sent myself for physical exam as a requirement for employment. I was shock for the result that there was a hazy impression on my CXR, i have a minimal TB. I was terrified, how could it be? My academic performance is excellent and i got a high score in the board exam and then i have this dse...?I was petrified... After some time, i realized that i possibly got the dse due to my prolonged duty in ER and OPD. My pulmonologist advised me to get rest while I'm on my chemotherapy. Two months have transpired and I'm on my second phase of treatment, which is another 4 months of chemo. But I'm so bored and i really need to get a job. My main concern is will i ever get out of my country for employment though i have a history of this dse? Currently I'm taking my review for nclex and i was already scheduled for d exam. pls help me.

Quote from EricEnfermero
Here in the US, we commonly use the term "chemotherapy" to mean "IV chemotherapy for cancer." Technically though, it's the use of a drug (PO, IV, any other route) to treat a medical condition. I think this is the context in which it's being used here.
"chemo" in non-oncological use, antibiotics..etc....anyhow, thnks....it todays usage it is usually coined to cytotoxic drugs...
