    Lymphedema

    Side Effects

    Such a multitude of emotions. Was laid off for two years prior to treatment. Money has run out a year ago. The list goes on and on.

    Lost loved one

    Loss

    Lost two very close friends to cancer during my treatment. They were too young. Added to my anxiety and depression.

    Cancer is shrinking

    Celebration

    What does the future hold for me and my family. Am I going to lose our house due to complication of where the tumor is.

    Decision Point

    I started losing rapid amounts of weight before diagnosis. Turns out tumor was pressing on my small bowel. Chronic diarrhea. Now extreme gas, diarrhea and bloating. Cannot be in public it's so bad. Will this ever get better. I have small intestone bacterial overgrowth from Gastric bybas 8 years ago that just started when diagnosed with cancer. I was fine up until that point.
