Learning About Breast Cancer
You will do just fine. Everyone experiences different side effects. For me, each treatment had different side effects, although I never got "sick." Focus on the positives ... Chemo is killing the cancer wherever it may be hiding! Plan for 5-7 days of feeling tired/crummy, then you will start to get your energy back. If you get neulasta shots the day after, take some Tylenol a few hours before. I found that I didn't need all the medication they prescribed to me... So after the 1st treatment I started cutting back. You will get through this AND become an even stronger woman! Focus on healing. Guided imagery and relaxation apps/DVDs can really help.
