    They had to decide if they were going to go for a second opinion

    Decision Point

    They did go to Md Anderson in Houston for a second opinion.

    Fatigue (tiredness)

    Side Effects

    She is tired a lot but they said that she wouldn't really feel the effects until 7-10 days after the first treatment and she has to go every 2 weeks for 6 weeks.
