    Radiation (External radiation ): 25 sessions, 5 days per week for 5 weeks. Some burning sensation but ointments really helped. I worked full time throughout this treatment.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Bone strengthening drugs): I am on Zolendronic Acid infusions (zometas) every six months, and I fully endorse the importance of this infusion. However, I was nauseous and very sick for 3 full days. Oncologist has diagnosed anti nausea meds which has helped a great deal.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): 4 infusions 3 weeks apart, AC chemotherapy was a varied experience. First time was a breeze; second time I was very sick for ten days, just getting better prior to the next infusion, and so on. I didn't work during AC infusion.
    However, 12 weekly paclitaxol infusions were much easier - I worked through the last 6 weeks, and into radiation.
