    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I was extremely lucky - no surgery other than a biopsy, no sickness, no radiation, 6 months of chemo and 3.5 years of scans, now just blood tests and so far I am cancer free.

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

    Side Effects

    Had chemo every 2 weeks for 6 months. Since my resistance was down, I was very careful to keep my suroundings as germ free as I could including my food. Didn't even have a cold throughout the treatment. I was very tired for about a week after chemo (probably because I was inactive - should have gotten more exercise). I did have very sensitive skin and itched a lot - was given meds to make that better.
