First of all, starting cancer treatment was great. I thought, and my family thought this was great idea because of you are the doctor, and told us that you have 40 plus years of experience. I am having side effects from treatment, but you said, " my 40 plus years of experience, I never seen side effect that you have. Maybe something's wrong with your body." Really? I don't know what to say.
