    Implant chemotherapy port

    Procedure or Surgery

    I've agreed to the word Minimal only because I was able to drive myself to all my Chemo treatments. However, 5-6 month after my treatments had begun, the meds caused respiratory problems and I had to be switched to a less intensive therapy for two (2) years.

    Went as Expected: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Recovery: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree

    Eating problems (anorexia)

    Side Effects

    I didn't have a good appetite; I mostly drank iced tea, or a milk shake.
