    Chemotherapy and radiation combined

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I am half done my treatment. It's starting to take it's toll. I have been working and receiving radiation 5 days a week for 6 weeks. I have 2 cycles of chemo, every 28 days, done with one and one to go. I am on the 5fu pump for 96 hours. I do not work while on chemo. My hair is shedding so far. I'm using baby wipes and steroid foam. Counting down the days till I'm done. I was in good health prior so I am hoping the side effects won't last long. Most of all hoping the results will show I am cancer free.
