    Celebration (Finished treatment): After 10 weeks from last treatment my energy level began to slowly return. My hair began to sprout and there was a wisp of hair growing. Six months from my last treatment, I began to go without my wig.

    Side Effects (Fatigue (tiredness)): Lost most of my toe nails. Finger nails lifted and were very sore. Lost hair a few weeks after first treatment. Food lost taste.

    Procedure or Surgery (Double Mastectomy): I was swollen for 6 weeks. Perhaps that was due to expanders?

    Decision Point (Whether to have a lumpectomy or double mastectomy.): Once I received the results from the BRAC test that I was positive, my mind was made up to go for the double mastectomy.

    Oh No (This can't be happening to me.)
