    Radiation (External radiation ): Started my 35 rounds of radiation on January 12, 2012, so far, so good.

    Procedure or Surgery (Lumpectomy): lumpectomy was probably the easiest part of the whole experience - minimal recovery time and the fatigue felt like it was mostly lingering from chemo. Had my sentinel node removed as well but happily no signs of lymphodema.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Had 4 rounds of Adrimyacin and Cytoxin followed by 4 rounds of Taxotere. A/C was manageable but the cumulative effect of the drugs and the increased side effects with taxotere hit me hard near the end.

    Decision Point: decided to freeze my eggs before starting chemo since I was 35, single and childless and wanted to make every effort to preserve my fertility
