    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Earlier infusions in clinic and portable infusions at home were easier with fewer side effects during the first few months of chemo. Now, I am experiencing an overall fatigue plus pounding heart in my ears, probably a sign of a higher blood pressure induced by one drug in the chemo cocktail. I only have one more round of chemo to go and I hope it isn't as severe as the last dosage.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree

    No noticeable side- effects from radiation other from fatigue, perhaps, from the long drive to and from appointments.
