    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Easy to receive the treatment. I had medication to prevent feeling sick to my stomach which worked most of the time however I felt weak, sick and exhausted. I became neutropenic and had to be hospitalized for several days. Had to wear a mask whenever I was out in public for a while which was only inconvenient (and hot!).

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