    Lumpectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    disfiguring in my opinion. I hate how I look in spite of Doctors saying "how good the surgery turned out" I have had post surgical pain ever since surgery. I have achieved a certain level of relief from arm exercises however.Thank God for my Husband who is supportive and loves me for me!Hard to do anything in the beginning, but healing eventualy takes place enough to regain independance once again. Mental as well as physical scarring is permanant.

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree

    External radiation

    Radiation

    still in radiation rounds. Severe burns and sleepless nights due to pain. Lots of creams,screams and lack of dreams. Radiation for me at least, has been a night mare. My Multiple Sclerosis has most likely made my experience worse. Not everyone has this reaction, I'm told. Please Lord, let this be worth it and over soon!

    Painless Experience: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree
