Chemotherapy Treatment

Question: chemotherapy treatment? did you or do you know of someone that went through chemotherapy and lost or gained weight, stop or continue working, lost hair and eyebrows? any extra info is appreciated.

Answer: I had chemotherapy last summer for breast cancer. I lost all my hair, eye lashes, eyebrows. I lost weight in the very beginning, but gained some with the steroids they had me on. I was a stay-at-home mom, but couldn't imagine trying to work during that time. I was on alot of medication for naseau and was still naseaus, but the most pain came from the neulesta shot I receieved after every chemo for the white blood cells....that caused severe bone pain and I was on pain meds for that.
