    Hormone therapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    In 5 years I've been tried on many drugs, now taking exemestane for 5 years and eribulin infusions, several drugs caused unacceptable side effects like mouth sores where I wouldn't swallow my own spit, hand and foot syndrome, bleeding ulcer, etc. others didn't work. wish this was less art and more science.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA
