    Always nice to see your smiling face and hear your positive thoughts! I see my light at the end of the tunnel going home and being with my black lab and my 18 year old daughter ^_^ we were working on my second cook book, guess she will have to take over since I cant taste anything, but she is a natural. wishing you continued luck and sucess on your recovery journey, I definately count on those neutra sal packets. Take care! Renee

    hi! I am finishing my radiation in four more days and finished my last chemo today ^_^ had a few days I didnt think I would get thru it but all the great people involved kept me posistive. This is a wonderful place to meet people in all different stages to give you hope and reassure you that you WILL get thru this. Take care, Renee

    I agree with you 110 % the chemo wasnt nearly as bad as the radiation! my neck looks like someone took a blow torch to it no matter how much creams i put on but I have to say the tongue pain is the hardest for me, it hurts just to force down my 3 shakes a day :( luckily I only have 4 more radiations then I go home. Was wondering how long it took for you to feel the pain start to ease up and to even begin to feel semi normal? Am staying positive it's not like we had a choice and I will never take anything in life for granted ^_^ Thank you for sharing your story! My total treatments by friday will be 35. And I dont want to ever have to do this again. I hope you are recovered and doing much better!! God Bless, Renee

      HI RENEE.......IT TOOK ME ABOUT 3 MONTHS AFTER MY LAST TREATMENTS IN OCTOBER 2012 TO GET OVER THE PAIN AND SORES ON MY TONGUE. IT WAS A NIGHTMARE. THE MAIN ISSUE NOW IS BATTLING THE DRY MOUTH......IT'S RUINING ME. DRINKING LOTS OF WATER ALL DAY AND OF COURSE IN THE BATHROOM PEEING ALL DAY, AND GETTING UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AT LEAST 5 TIMES PER NIGHT TO PEE AND DRINK WATER. MY RADIATION ONCOLOGIST TOLD ME NOT TO BE SURPRISED IF IT'S PERMANENT AFTER THE 33 RADIATIONS.....I ALSO HAVE A LOT OF FATIGUE. BEST OF LUCK TO YOU.....IF THERE'S ANYTHING I CAN DO FOR YOU, WRITE TO ME.. HAVE A GOOD DAY.
