    I had a wonderful doctor and team of techs. but I had so much fatigue that I went to treatment in my pajamas. But it gave us something to laugh at.

    Side Effects

    I had deep fatigue. I couldn't walk or stand. I still can't stand over 10 min. But the worst was that the chemo degenerated 3 of my lumber discs. And I have been in horrible pain with no relief. The doctor put me on narcotic meds. I couldn't get off of them. Finally, I did some personal research and came up with something to help me get off of them. I was of within 24 hours and on a much lesser pain medication. But I still need to get my back "fixed" and there is only one doctor here who can do it. He is very busy and am praying he takes my case.

    Loss

    I felt a lot of grief over losing my hair, but nothing like losing my breast. I was in grief for a long time. I'm ok now and have a wonderful adhesive form that adhers to my skin.
