    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Extreme Nausea And Vomiting! I have never felt so sick in my life! My body did not react well to the chemo at all. I would vomit up to 50 times a day for 3-5 days after the infusion. I had to take trips to the hospital after every chemo for meds and hydration because i couldnt keep anything down. Hot and cold sweats, Extreme Anxiety, unable to sleep, and pain in my whole body. Thank God thats over for now!

    Internal radiation

    Radiation

    I completed 5 treatments of internal radiation 3 weeks ago. I hate to be so negative but this was a horrible expirence for me. I feel so angry because it hurt so bad. One session the sedative medication didnt work and i was completely aware of what was happeing for the whole treatment which is something i feel i will never forget.
