    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I was originally told that "if it was cancer, it's so little that a bit of radiation would all be needed". Turned out to be Triple-Negative disease resulting in maga chemo followed by 33 rounds of radiation.

    Easy to Do: Not Specified
    Minimal Side Effects: Not Specified
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Not Specified
