    Procedure or Surgery: Had a bilateral mastectomy 4 weeks ago and I'm healing up very well. Drains are out but now I seem to have some fluid build up in spots. I had stop wearing the compression garment but am going to try to wear it to see if that might help. It's not a huge deal of fluid so Dr. says it should be ok as long as it goes down overnight each time.

    Side Effects (Flu-like symptoms (fever, chills, sweats)): I get these symptoms from my bone infusions but they only last a day or two and then I seem to be ok again.

    Side Effects (Weight gain): The hormone pill has caused a great deal of weight gain! This has been at a rate of 6 pounds per month! This is bad because I've not been allowed to exercise due to all the bone damage and current lesions.
