Chemotherapy and radiation combined - crazycatgirl

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Lung Cancer. Posted on October 13, 2011 View this journey (4 Experiences)

I guess I was one of the more fortunate patients as I had 2 wonderful friends who took me to daily treatments for 3 months...after spending a week in the hospital, they were able to get a handle on what type of pain management they would give me so that I could under-go treatment...the radiation made me very tired and completely lose my appetite, but otherwise OK...the chemotherapy had to be changed after only one treatment as it caused me to suffer a profound hearing loss...since then, I have been on 4 different chemo's, but my body kept getting used to them and they would stop working...I cut my hair all the way down as I was going to lose it on my terms, but to everyone's surprize, I never did...
