    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Without a spleen, I had what became severe mouth infections, both bacterial and yeast. After 5th round I ended up in hospital with sever neutropenia. Yeast infection had gone all over my body, leading to loss of my finger- and toenails.

    Easy to Do: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
