    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    The chemo was the worst part, I was really not sick at all until I started taking the chemo and then the pain and the fatigue set in.

    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree

    Pain

    Side Effects

    The constant pain is the worst. I have always been very active and to now be dependent on pain meds just to do daily activites at times just seems to be too much.

    to continue with the chemo treatments but this time to try stronger drugs in a clinical trial.

    Decision Point

    I am afraid because I don't know what the outcome will be or what the side affects of the treatment will be and I feel so alone because all my caregiver can see is that there is another chance for me to beat the cancer.
