    Cancer is back/Recurred

    Oh No

    My original surgeon insisted all the cancer cells were confined to the tumor. 18 months later, my cancer has returned.

    Fatigue (tiredness)

    Hard to do anything, feeling weak all the time. Force myself to work daily and walk through the neighborhood.

    Radiation

    Hardest part is dropping what I am doing to drive to the cancer center for the treatment. It takes me longer to drive there than to have the treatment.
