    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Chemo therapy was an inconvenience but I did not have as many side effects as others. I was very fatigued especially from the nuelasta shot. I felt sick after the trestments but never threw up and never lost my appetite. Lost all my hair and my nails are discolored and some may fall off. My eyes watered really bad which was very annoying.

    Easy to Do: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree

    Hot flashes

    Side Effects

    Not a great side effect but no periods is a plus.

    Type of surgery

    Decision Point

    I'm done with chemo and the treatments worked great. The tumor has shrunk significantly. Now I am trying to decide what type of surgery is best. Lumpectomy with radiation, mastectomy with reconstruction or double mastectomy with reconstruction.
