    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I felt too busy to have cancer. I didn't feel as though I would die from it but anxious who was going to take care of my family. Who was going to do all the things I do?

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    The side effects from the radiation and chemo seemed to balance out the effects of each other making it bearable. I developed a terrible pain in my legs and ringing in my ears.

    Easy to Do: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree

    Radiation and chemotherapy together

    Radiation

    As long as I was taking both treatments the side effects of the radiation were minamal. But after the chemo was finished it was very difficult to cope with the side effects. I was very uncomfortable.

    Painless Experience: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA
