    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Targeted therapy): After 4 rounds of strong chemo, not doing Herceptin every 3 weeks until July, 2014. No side effect, except maybe a little tired, but I go to work 5 days a week.

    Radiation (External radiation ): Had 18 rounds this time. 8 years ago, I had 33, but the 18 were more intense.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Had chemo on Wednesdays and was almost helpless on Friday thru Sunday. No energy. Had to go back and get shots to boost white blood count.

    Procedure or Surgery (Lumpectomy): Had port put in during surgery. No problems at all. Node surgery hurt the worst. My Dr. said my lymph nodes had dropped so he had to go deep. Had to have a drain and my bra kept rubbing the incision. I was in a lot of pain for several weeks.
