    External radiation

    Radiation

    I just started a 10-day prescription of radiation treatment - on the third day, so I don't really have a lot to say. It has been easy so far.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Although in many ways the 5 sessions of chemo I received was easier than most, I definitely felt impacted by the process as I was totally wiped out by it. Fortunately I did not experience much nausea and NO vomiting. I did have chemo brain something terrible though and felt in a constant fog. Nonetheless, I feel fortunate that I received the chemo. I feel it made a difference and will do another round down the road.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
