    Radiation

    while the treatments are painless the effects of burning tumors are not.

    Chemo brain

    Side Effects

    It.s hard to explain the overwhelming feeling of dread that goes with treatment.My only hope is that this is working.Radiation is done .but still have three more chemo sessions left.God only knows where I go from there.It's hard to feel optimistic when you feel so lousy.I see many kids where I get my treatment and that to me is the nightmare of cancer,lets pray that there's something better on the horizon!

    15 treatments to the brain I can't tell you how much Ilove this.They say it will prevent cancer in my brain.The docters have been right on so far so I'm hoping they're right again.

    Other Care

    Done with radiation and chemo for now?Got a ct scan on tuesday that I guess will determine life or death,or hope or dispair.I'm thinking positive but I can't help feeling a little anxious.does anyone out there know what I'm saying or for that matter even care?I hope someone at least could wish me luck!
