    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I'm starting my 6 month of chemo on tues and I was told by my dr and the nurses the first 3 months of chemo are the worse. Oh no not for me. These last couple months have been awful with the side effects. Been to the ER twice in the last month from being so weak I could barely walk. It scares me so bad when I get this way.

    Easy to Do: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree

    Breast Reconstruction (Flap)

    Procedure or Surgery

    This really depends on what procedure you have done. I had the type where dr cut me from hip to hip and used my belly fat to form a breast so yes VERY PAINFUL but fingers crossed its gonna be worth it!!
