    Chemotherapy

    The most horrible experience of my life and truly thought the chemo would kill me if the cancer did not. Don't know that if the cancer returned whether I would have the strength to go through it again.

    Was unable to be out in the sun at all for a long time due to the side affects from the radiation. Still can only tolerate a minimal amount of sun on my skin. But, not near as a painful experience than chemo.
