    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Chemotherapy was for 7 sessions every Monday morning after radiation. I was extremely lucky compared to others i have talked with. I was blessed to have an appettite during the process and nausea was minimal. Hair loss was also very minimal, which totally shocked myself and others.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): Had some lymph nodes removed that the cancer had spread to. Then had to return to the hospital one week after surgery because of infection.
