    Surgery or Chemo

    Decision Point

    After talking with the surgeon, we decided to try to reduce the cancer prior to surgery. She immediately stated chemo. After researching my specific cancer, we came to the conclusion that chemo would not be very affective. When pushed, the oncologist agreed and we are trying to reduce the cancer with drugs.

    Hormone therapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I have had Lupine injections and also taking tamoxifen daily. The side effects are sort of like being pregnant. I have a fuzzy head sometimes, can not sleep through the night and have severe night sweats. All in all livable for now.

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

    Acupuncture

    Other Care

    I have been seeing an acupuncturist for the past month. It seems to be helping in re leaving some of the side effects.
