    Celebration (LIFE is a celebration): I never had a specific celebration. Every day has been a celebration since my diagnosis.

    Loss (Body part/function): I lost my uterus and ovaries. So, menopause passed quickly for me! I wish I could have kept my ovaries. The chemical changes my body has gone through have not been pleasant.

    Side Effects (Nausea, vomitting, sweats, loss of bladder & bowel control.): The radiation "cooked" my GI tract, bladder, intestines, bowel. Actually, my bladder and stomach have never returned to normal. I have to be extremely careful about what I eat or I can get terrible cramps and diarrhea in about one minute. Not fun if you are in a restaurant!

    Regardless of the side effects, I'M ALIVE, and life is good.
