    Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    I have have had Breast Cancer now 3 times in the same lelf Breast. First time just Radiation. Second time they took the tumor, Radiation again. 3#rd time a full Mastectomy. Chemo, Radiation. And ever since I've done the Chemo I have a very difficult time remember Day's' Times' short term as well as long term memory has suffered so bad that I feel I'm permanently disable at time it's a very frustrating side effect.How ever i try to live with it the best i know how. I also have no feeling in my hand and feet and at night , of course just when i want to lay down to go to sleep My feet start to burn and there for I'm constantly waking up through out the night. Leaving me restless and deprive of a full night sleep.My doctor wanted me to take Tamoxifen for 5 year's however I stop taking it because of the side effect's where just to much for me to handle.I feel by doing the prevented drug Hersiptent should be sufficient enough.

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree

    Radiation

    I hated it and I still feel my skin burn if i even get in the sun at time. And for me that is seamlessly hard because I'm a sun lover..
