    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I did chemo 1s a week so never realy felt that well but I did want it over so that is just something you have to except by the 4th chemo my hair was coming out to much to keep it so off it came my son shaved it for me. You wait in anticipation of the next treatment it seems your normal life takes a backseat.

    Clinical Trial

    I decided to go on a clinical trial. It was this drug that created more side effect issues then the chemo

    Anemia (low red blood cell counts)
