    If you have completed treatment, do you have side effects that still have not gone away?

    What have you done that helped outside of what your doctors have recommended?

      Yes, many, unfortunately. Still trying to learn to accept the "new" me. Neuropathy, vestibular dysfunction, chemo brain, loss of processing and multiprocessing skills, neurological and muscular damage due to mini-stroke. When the frustration builds up and I get cranky and depressed, my husband reminds me that I'm alive and cancer-free. I'm hard on myself, so I'm still trying to learn to accept my new limitations. I've had a lot of physical therapy to help me relearn skills...my PT has been a godsend. Most importantly, I'm not afraid to go to my doctor if something just doesn't feel right, and I'm proactive about my screenings.

      My gifts that keep giving are: neuropathy especially in my feet, chemo brain (aphasia -- I can't remember words -- can remember the word aphasia but will blank on stupid things like thunderstorm) and fatigue.

      Fatigue, vertigo, peripheral neuropathy and chemo brain... after more than a year out of chemo. Boo!

      Chemotherapy, the gift that keeps on giving.
