    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I knew in my heart that something was wrong, I could no longer ignore the symptoms and went to see the dr. Was diagnosed, learned what should be done but decided to go home and bury my head in the sheets.

    have to decide on next treatment

    Decision Point

    I am thinking radiation...internal and external are recommended. Doctor also would like chemo as an option but I don't want it(chemo).
