Answer

Patients should be educated about the signs of febrile neutropenia and thrombocytopenia. The long-term adverse effects of chemotherapeutic agents must be clearly explained, and issues related to chemotherapy-associated infertility (eg, sperm banking) must be presented and discussed. Procedure-related adverse effects and failure to obtain informed consent should also be addressed.
