    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): The side effects were managed well with anti-emetics but it was still a very draining experience. I received treatment on Fridays and by Monday I was able to go to work. Though residual nausea lasted about a week. I had treatment every two weeks.

    Procedure or Surgery (Double Mastectomy): Overall the procedure went really well. I was in the hospital for 2 days post op and had 4 drains that remained in place for about 3 wks. The hardest part was the inability and discomfort when reaching overhead. And not wearing deodorant for over a month. It was hard to go out and think I smelled, in addition to feeling like I was sick.
