    Kevin from Atlanta

      I just finished WBR about six weeks ago. Getting the treatments is no big deal. She very well may have to shave her head.

      I still have not been allowed to drive but hopefully that rescrition will be removed this week. Other than fatgue and some short term memory lose, I have had no issues. They say the short term lose goes away with time. She should ask for nusea in advance.

      They do get great results with the WBR.
