    Side Effects (Anemia (low red blood cell counts)): Only one I didn't get was vomiting. Go figure.

    Oh No (No immune system): Hospitalized for four days while the doctors tried to get my white blood cell count up. Neutropenic fever.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): After my first chemo, it wasn't too horrible. Went in the following week for Herceptin and was told I had one white blood cell but they sent me home. That night my temp went up to 105F and the on-call doctor told me to get to the ER.

    Procedure or Surgery (Double Mastectomy): Not as big of a deal as I was expecting.
