    Other Care (Zometa, Zolodex, Metformin and Tamoxifen): I visit the cancer center every three months for a Zolodex shot in the tummy, every six months for a Zometa infusion and take metformin and tamoxifen daily. The metformin treats a fatty liver which is most likely caused by the other medications.

    Loss (Body part/function): Before my first treatment, I donated my hair to locks of love. I started loosing my hair after the second treatment. My friends and family had a hat party for me so I was able to coordinate my hats and wraps with my work clothes. I also learned how to wrap a turban with a scarf.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I had my treatments every other Thursday so I was usually sick through the weekend and usually returned to work on Wednesday.
