      Thanks Debbie. You live close by. My treatments (surgery, and chemo - not rad though) were all at Loyola. I can't say enough about the doc's there! I was diagnosed at 42, and it was as you know terrifying!

    Radiation (External radiation ): The 2 months of radiation itself seemed like a cake walk after open heart surgery and the chemo, however, I have permanent nerve damage to my back (lots of itching and burning). Also, the scar tissue from the radiation near my heart makes it very hard to determine if there is still tumor there, or if it is just scar tissue. It increated 2 millimeters recently, but I was told that scar tissue can expand slightly as you heal.
