Chemotherapy - Marcie

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on May 7, 2012 View this journey (12 Experiences)

I had to have triple dose chemo( 3 different drugs administered)each treatment. I was truly blessed that the pills they gave me to take the day of and 2 days after each treatment worked wonderfully for the nausea..I had very little at all. Each treatment was a little worse than the one before and after the 3rd treatment I got pneumonia and a severe blood infection of some kind and almost ended up in CICU. My oncologist agreed that I had gotten to the wrong side of the risk and benefits scale and stopped treatment. He said it does not help to give me the treatment if the treatment is killing me.
