    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I really had no problem with the chemo. I would take my nausea meds as soon as the treatment was done and I was fine. I took TCH. I will be done with Herceptin in June 2013.

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