    Chemotherapy and radiation combined

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    That was the first round of treatment after diagnoses. In that time my cancer grew back in my head and spread even more. I eventually went on immunotherapy that saved my lfe.

    Bone strengthening drugs

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    life. Medicine has sever side effects. For me I decided not to continue as it made me very sick and I felt bad enough from treatment surgeries. I have osteoporosis and bone density loss due to chemotherapy and cancer. I take vitamin d and c in large doses now and it's the best option in place if the others.
