    Radiation: The radiation was not hard at all.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy: The chemo-therapy treatments were hard. Losing my hair was something I struggled with. Coming out of the therapy and going into menopause was very taxing. The treatments, hair loss and wigs, and hotflashes together was a difficult experience.

    Procedure or Surgery (Mastectomy): I never expected that my husband would be most of the caregiver after the surgery. I had a hard time with that because not only did I have surgery my teen son, who played football, broke his leg at th same time. My husband had double duty. It was very difficult.

    Decision Point (I had to decide if I wanted to have a mastectomy or a lumpectomy done): Ultimately, I chose the mastectomy.
