Chemotherapy + IMMEDIATE Menopause = Crying at the dumbest moments

December 21, 2016

So yea. A rarely talked about side effect of chemotherapy is menopause. Not a slowing down of hormones, but the immediate end. And let me tell you, that’s some fun stuff right there.

The not-so-pretty side of cancer – the meltdowns

December 17, 2016
