    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I had chemo every two weeks unless my labs showed low white cells or low hemoglobin or low platelets. I was sick to my stomach, had chills difficulty eating and sleeping.

    I've only had one radiation and no chemo yet. That will happen this morning. It wasn't as bad as I thought. It was quick.

    Painless Experience: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Not Specified
