    Other

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    i was treated with a chemo pill called nexavar for liver and kidney cancer. after over a year though i had a series of small strokes that the doctor said was most likely caused by the nexavar. i have a decision to make about the end of the month, whether i want to go back on the cancer medicine and risk a bad stroke or just do the best i can for as long as i can. i have been out of the hospital now for a week and a half or so and feel more like my old self.i know without the drug it is a matter of time but the risk of being crippled, not being able to talk or go to the bathroom on my owm, i am not sure if it is worth it.
