    Anemia (low red blood cell counts)

    Side Effects

    Had many side effects from chemo and radiation treatments. Lost my hair. My throat was so sore I couldn't eat solid food for over 6 months. I had low red and white blood cell counts after each round of chemo. Other side effects included chemo brain, dry mouth, anxiety, insomnia.
