    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Almost done with 12 treatments.. YAY! Minimal side effects- hair thinning, (but not gone, thank God), no loss of appetite (my husband can testify, I still eat like a horse. lol), some neuropathy starting to set in..the worst has been the cold sensitivity! My nose is my new thermometer..if it's too cold anywhere it tingles. :-/ Keep faith and fight on!

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