    Ok, I am doing a story for school on stage III breast cancer and I need some research. What chemo drug or drugs can a stage three breast cancer patient take, after having a double mastectomy that will cause her to have these following symptoms:

    nausea

    fatigue

    vomiting

    mouth sores

    memory problems

    Lymphoedema

    and absolute hair loss
