    Side Effects (Fatigue (tiredness)): Have only had my first treatment but just as predicted by the 3rd day after I was hit with the most incredible case of fatigue. Couldnt get off the couch. Everything aches but no fever or chills. Head ache is really survere. Tylenol does not really help. I just keep telling myself each day will get better.

    Side Effects (Constipation): Cant emphasise enough the need to use a stool softner and laxative. That first bowel movement after the chemo was a killer!

    Procedure or Surgery (Double Mastectomy): I choose to have breast reconstruction and the expanders that have been implanted are more than a slight nusence. I know when it is over I will be happy about my decision but the day to day can be very uncomfortable. Cant wait till I can sleep on my stomach again!!
