    Anemia medicine

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Only had this one time. Was given a small test bag and took it fine. They then gave me the big bag and I took it fine until right at the end and had a reaction. That was scarey and when my husband got in there where I was at there were so many dr's and nurses around me. Had to postpone my first chemo treatment until the next day.

    Easy to Do: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree

    Lobectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    The surgery itself went fine but had to be taken back to surgery that night due to bleeders. That was no fun. Also broke out with the shingles just a couple of days after surgery and that was no fun either.

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