    Sentinel lymph node biopsy

    Procedure or Surgery

    Wound became infected but was not treated before chemo 1 week later. White Blood count dropped after chemo... 6 days in hospital had to have wound lanced and infection sucked out and now have to 'pack' the wound daily until it closes from inside.

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

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Other than the White Blood Cell count dropping to 0, 7 days after the chemo wasn't as bad as I feared.

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

    Hair loss (alopecia)

    Side Effects

    This hit 2 days after I got out of the hospital... 1 week to the day from the 1st chemo treatment. should be all gone in the next 2-3 days. Scalp itches/hurts then hair just falls out if you touch it.
