    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I hate 3 chemo drugs: Bleomycin (which was the strongest and had to be given through a syringe over 1.5 hours because if received to fast my lungs would collapse in less then 3 seconds) , Etoposide and Cisplatin.

    My chemo was very strong and long. 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.. 5 days on, 10 days off for 6 months...
    my last 2 treatments i was not able to receive the Bleomycin because i have had my lifetime limit. I am unable to receive that drug again in my lifetime.

    I also a had a lot of other things for nausea and sleep. This medication caused me to have a seizure at one point.. Very Scary!

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): It is hard to answer the above questions because they were not sure what they would find when operating. All they knew was it was a large mass. During surgery they found a tumor the size of a FULLY INFLATED soccer ball.. with 3 different types of cancer within it.

    Oh No (Extremely Rare): I went in at 16 and they gave me a 99% chance it was NOT cancer.. and when it was.. it was 3 types in 1 tumor and they weren't sure I was old enough to receive some of the treatments that were necessary.
