    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    had a mediport, so that made access for IV meds easy, but the side effects were horrible, I seemed to have them all!! severe migranes, which I had never had before, and so very tired and wiped out from the chemo!!

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