    Implant chemotherapy port

    Procedure or Surgery

    Didn't go as planned. Surgeon wanted to put the port on the right side but could not get it in. I woke up when he started to put it in left side. They sedated me more. I developed a migraine after I went home and spent the afternoon sick and in pain.

    Fatigue (tiredness)

    Side Effects

    The fatigue was like wading thru concrete and I am a runner. Didn't expect it. I also had nausea, dizziness and asthma symptoms.
