    Implant chemotherapy port

    Procedure or Surgery

    I was expecting the port to be a bit different, it was much more involved than I thought. It did take some time to recover and didn't feel real great in the process, however, I'm very grateful now to have one as I'm going through the chemo process.

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

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    You are tired...ALL the time! However, you feel rough for three or four days, then you slowly get stronger and have a few good days. Just always remember, it's making you better.

    Easy to Do: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree

    Hair loss (alopecia)

    Side Effects

    I started losing my hair, so I shaved it. It is still slowly coming out though. It's like I'm shedding! Just come out already, this waiting for it to all fall out is killing me!
