    Just Diagnosed

    Oh No

    June 2018. I’ll never forget it. My doctor said inoperable and I have two years to live. Oh no! I have made many changes in my life to improve the quality of living around here. I’m here at two tears now and still going “strong”.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I started with Gemzar and abraxane and. About 17 months. Took a break and did 5Fu and iriatacin for 2 months (it didn’t work and the side effects were horrible. Now I’m on carboplatin (3 months now, every week)It seems to be slowing down the monster, but it’s still growing and spreading. The side effects are vomiting, nausea fatigue.

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