    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    the chemo was more agressive and i felt how it affected my body. i has hard for me and esspecially hard for my famly to see me hurting and sadden by what i was going through. i also went through a stem cell transplant with my own stem cells. I was re-born again an have been in good health since i did the trasnplant in march of 2011.

    Fatigue (tiredness)

    Side Effects

    i was throwing up everything i ate and having body aches. My hair was growing back from my first treaments and then after hearing that the cancer came back and after the first treament, my hair started to fall off right away. my blood counts were low and also my white blood cells were low.

    Clinical Trial

    My doctor recomend that i inlisted in this trial because it would help control the cancer if it ever came back the 3rd time.
