    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I had 5FU. After 5 treatments, I had a toxic reaction to it, and that nearly killed me. I was in the hospital for about 4-5 months. And had a long recovery.

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

    I only received 5 or 6 treatments, and then the doctors agreed to end it because I got so sick from the chemo.

    Painless Experience: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
