    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Chemo for my mother is always a tough time, although i have yet to meet someone who it was easy for. In addition to having a hard time with the Chemo, it always beats down her white blood cells. The only thing they do for that is give her a shot which makes her feel Even Worst!!

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

    Internal radiation

    Radiation

    my poor mother had a device inserted in her vaginally, which they attached everyday to a large machine which gave the radiation. The radiation left her internal body parts brittle and think in areas, and hard like cement in other areas due to scar tissue.

    Painless Experience: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
