anyone gone through chemo and radiation? how did it affect you. Reply to my cafemom Email please

My girlfriend just had a masctectomy. She has one lymph node that came back positive for cancer and will need radiation and chemo. I have been helping her out since Surgery last Friday. She did extremely well with that but we both fear how chemo and radiation is going to make her feel. Lose her hair? Feel weak? Doctors don't give you much information. They act like we should both know already. She starts chemo in three weeks. Since this is the first time I have used this section can anyone answer in my Cafe Mom email box MSugarKane is my home page.
