Researchers studying nearly two-thousand breast cancer patients have found that almost half of the women experienced at least one severe to very severe side-effect due to their regimen.
Pain, constipation and breast skin irritation were reported as the most bothersome side-effects.
It appears that the more toxicity a patient experienced, the less likely it was for her to have optimal health.
Side-effects also varied depending on which treatment patients were undergoing.
Severe pain accompanied chemotherapy, while radiotherapy seemed to bring about breast skin irritation.
