I am now taking erbitux and irinotecan. The erbitux has caused a severe rash all over my chest, back and face. Its like acne. I was given minocyline for the rash. It works but it is very severe and looks bad.

I have a huge hernia now from both surgeries that causes my stomach to protrude way out in front. It looks like I am about 8 months pregnant. So now I have acne and a fat stomach...real nice! LOL!

It is a struggle everyday for me. Mentally, physically. But GOD IS AWESOME!!! I am here alive and can do mostly everything I want to do.
