Result: The physical response of cervical cancer patients on chemotherapy include nausea, vomiting, constipation, peripheral neuropathy, fatigue, weight loss, alopecia, skin toxicity, decreased appetite, pain, change in taste on the tongue. The coping of the patients generally use traditional ways or leave it, and very few pharmacological were used to resolve the problem.
Conclusion: Chemotherapy give real effect to the physical. Patients in general were coping by traditional and non-pharmacological means. Suggestion: the results of the research can be used as evidence-based research in the treatment of cervical cancer patients with chemotherapy and used as the basis for the development of interventions to improve the life quality of the patients.
