    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    tolerating chemo physically without nausea; had some other side effects: novacaine like numbness in lower lip and jaw since first chemo after third round of Chop R my vision is weird - can't always focus clearly, lips have dried out more than before and hearing can be muffled on some days as well as ringing in the right ear but I also have Menierie's disease (unexplained sensory hearing loss) which I have had for years.

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