    Side Effects

    Burn marks from radiation. Chemo made me so ill I didn't know if I could go through with it. Radiation was a big inconvience because you had to go every single day (weekends off) Lost alot of weight. Loss of appetite. I hate having blood drawn so they put a port in me for easier access to my blood and Chemo infusions. It looked like a big tumor on the upper left chest wall.

    Loss

    Loss of my right breast, but I had a rebuild at the same time as the surgery itself. The plastic surgeon kind of botched things up and now I have what looks like a breast with no nipple and a huge scar down my back
