Breast Surgeon sent the Oncologist referral. That appointment was to go over the numbers and discuss treatment options. I had 5 different options! I chose the one with the best survivor rate, but the hardest on my body.
Side Effects - Bone, Heart, and Back Issues.
6 chemotherapy treatments- included 5 meds
A year of target meds - included 2 meds
After the 6 treatments we would evaluate the lump and see if surgery and radiation was needed.
Heart and bone test every 3 months to make sure my body could stand what I was being given (poison) chemo treatments basically kill everything in your body it has no way to determine what cells are good or bad so it kills it all!
