    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Since I have been on chemo for over 5 yrs, fatigue is a big part of my treatment. It lasts for a minimum of 4 days each week. Can't plan anything on those days, and actually retired a year early because I had to call off on a regular basis. Other side effects have been piling up now too.

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