    Biopsy, pic line

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had a pic line, in my arm all the time, it wasn't to bad just had to remember to flush it on my week off of chemo and also at age 17 it was an inconvience getting dressed up and having to cut a sock and wear it over your arm, so that people couldn't see the huge Iv sticking out your arm but other than that I always looked pretty cute

    External radiation

    Radiation

    Not too bad but my throat would often hurt, magic mouth wash works to a degree but you can't really swallow it so doesn't really stop your throat from hurting only the part where you can get the mouth wash on without swallowingr

    Painless Experience: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree

    Anemia (low red blood cell counts)

    Side Effects

    To be honest I had many side effects, constipation, my immune system would always start to shutdown because I'm hard headed I liked to go outside, there was so many little things I had going on far as side effects
