    Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy)

    Side Effects

    I had many side effects from the treatment. I still have nerve damage. My mouth was continually full of sores, fortunately I was given different mouth washes that helped with this. Very tired, constipation, diarrhea, flu like symptons.

    Anniversary

    Celebration

    I had my 3 year since diagnosed diagnostic mammogram and it was good!! I'm so thankful, I had to wait 45 minutes to hear the news and I was sitting on pins and needles, but it was good news! I was so scared and now I'm so thankful! I feel bad celebrating when so many others are struggling - I think I need to let go of this, but it is so hard.
