    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Had great anti-nausea meds, but still felt sick to my stomach and constantly tired.

    My surgeon gave me two options, Lumpectomy or Mastectomy.

    Decision Point

    I decided to have a mastectomy on both breasts although only one was affected.
