    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I was diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma last Feb., with a large tumor in my right thigh that metastasized to my lungs, after I was being treated for a blood clot in my leg. The blood clot had been caused by the tumor. i had the tumor all along when they were treating me for a blood clot for months. so the cancer diagnosis was a shock.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Although the tumor in the thigh caused a lot of pain, the lesions in the lungs were the main worry, so working with my oncologist I decided to do chemotherapy and participate in a clinical trial. I had six rounds of the chemotherapy, once every three weeks. The last one is four weeks behind me now. i haven't felt this good since Feb. I was very fatigued from the chemo, and lost my appetite because of the mouth sores, but i did not have too much nausea. My partner has been with me every step of the way and he has taken such good care of me.
