    Oh No

    My cancer was found during a CT scan on my neck, and came as a complete surprise.

    Hair loss (alopecia)

    Side Effects

    Quite a surprise when my eyebrows and lashes came out. I knew I would lose my hair. By the way, I am loving being bald. It is like being free from all the tadoo having to do with hair.

    If I should have brain radiation as a preventive measure. I said NO!

    Decision Point

    I know my cancer will pop up another place and there is a good possibility that it will be the brain. However, we will deal with that when the time comes.
