Hi all, I am new to the board. I am sorry you all have to be here on this board, and sorry for me too :( Had a bilatery mastectomy May 4, chemo to start after I'm completed healed. Have a favor to ask for those of you who have had chemo. Don't know which course of treatment I will have but I am terrified of the side effects. Losing my hair is the least of my worries. Will some of you who have had chemo let me know how it went or is going? How long after each treatment before the side effects happen? Are they as bad as I've read or does "today's medicine" have an improved outcome? Anything you can tell me about your experience would be so appreciated. Oh, I am so afraid.
