      I don't regret it, because it slowed down a few very aggressive mets for me. However, there was certainly a price to be paid in pleurisy and pneumonitis. I'd be ticked off if I'd not had a result and then had to suffer those side effects.
      All we can do is hope it's going to work.

      Because of the type and location of my cancer radiation and surgery were the only available treatments for it. I have lots of side effects left over from it but no, I do not regret it at all.

      IF you can, look always forward. We are all damaged goods - that is the "cost of living" once cancer strikes. We adapt, compensate, tolerate, whine, moan, groan, curse, swear, but always move forward. I mean, you had a good chance that it would work, so at the time, it was completely reasonable.

      I tried 12 different drugs and the danged stuff defeated it all, mutated into two types and brought a third cancer along with it. I do not regret the fight - it happened for a reason and I am better and stronger in some ways because of it.
