    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Had chemo every 3 weeks for 4 treatments. My husband brought me the first 2 treatments and after I was hooked up I sent him to work. He picked me up afterward. The last 2 treatments I went by myself.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
