    Port for Chemo has been put in.

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had a car accident 1 week prior to having port put in. Air bags went off and now I also have a cracked Sternum.

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA

    Other Care

    Well, all test are done. Port in and then find out the chemo Dr is on vacation for 2 weeks. Waiting to start Chemo. Just gives me more time to work on nutrition.

    External radiation

    Radiation

    I have completed 20 radiation treatments. 17 more to go. Yes, I have a sunburn,I am using aquaphor to help the skin, and yes I am really tired. After 16 weeks of chemo and 20 of 37 rounds of radiation. We have done an aggressive treatment to help make sure that the cancer is gone!

    Painless Experience: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree

    Celebration

    Yesterday my Dr. told me I had "No active cancer", He feels I am cancer FREE! I still have 8 more radiation then treatment is done. Hurray! My chances of recurrence is about 12%. I am still facing more surgery and healing.

    Celebration

    Radiation is now complete all 37 rounds. Very tired, but so happy to be done. Now 6 to 8 weeks to build back up my body and then more surgery. I was told that I have no active cancer in my body! Awesome! What a hard journey this year has been. Let us pray next year will be better for ALL!
