    Radiation (External radiation ): Radiation was tedious. Every day! Burned really bad and none of the lotions or aloe would help.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Twelve treatments of Gemzar and six of Taxotere. A total of 18 weeks of treatment. Taxotere made me retain fluid. Had to change to Cisplatin which extended my chemo.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): Doctors removed 6 tumors. All except one were within the abdominal wall. It was better than they thought and went well. My incision was twelve inches long and took 40 staples.

    So, I had a biopsy on a mass that they found in my abdomen on Tuesday. Today (Thursday), I found out that it was cancer. Going into battle again--I've done it once, I'll do it again!
