    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Never been sick in my life except for a knee operation in 1997. This was a total shock to know I have cancer plus mets to many organs and bone.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I had my first round of cisplatin yesterday. No ill-effects but the doctor has given me several anti-emetics so I am praying they work. Radiation starts this afternoon. I was diagnosed in Dec. 2011 so am thinking this is pretty quick to start treatment of which I am really glad.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
