    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Had T-C cocktail. The added relaxants, anti-nausea meds did their job. Side effects were mostly liveable, i.e. some bad days, but mostly average days. Some side effects were severe and resulted in a smaller dosage for my last treatment. 5 months post-chemo side effects still manifesting. But I feel well. Exercise, even at low level, during treatment helped to minimize fatigue, and elevated mood considerably.

    Easy to Do: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
