    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    4 rounds of Cytoxan & Taxotere. White blood cell count bottomed out after first round. Neulasta shots after remaining treatments. Bone pain from shots. Also experienced sore mouth from chemo, Magic Mouthwash helped.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
