    Radiation (External radiation ): I loved my radiation team & my radiation doctor. My doc took a lot of time explaining what was going to happen. The only surprise was the tattooing outlying the radiated area.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): The only problem was the Neulasta shots the day after. My daughter, a trauma nurse, administered my shots to me.

      Was it the drug or the actual shot? Painful?

      I found Neulasta bone pain to be the worst part of chemo

    Procedure or Surgery (Reconstructive surgery, both breasts. ): My anesthesia tube in right breast malfunctioned - nurse would not call my doctor. I suffered all night in pain with the wrong bra, under medicated & no sleep. My doctor came in the morning & asked, what happened? Her PA was covering for her all night, but turned off his phone at 8:15 PM. I ASKED MY SURGEON FOR AN APOLOGY - she apologized profusely. I did not go back to her for my one year check up. Instead, I saw my oncologist.
