    Hi. Good luck in your journey, it can be pretty depressing at times but a good support system and a positive attitude helps. I was so fearful of the surgery and the chemotherapy, but so far so good! God Bless you and hang in there.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Had minimal side effects. Felt physically and mentally tired a lot. I'm a very emotional person so I was depressed throughout most of the treatment and still suffer from depression and anxiety even though I finished the treatment on 9/28/18.

      Hi @Patstrong, welcome to WhatNext and thanks for sharing your experience. I suggest talking with your Oncologist and perhaps your Primary Doctors about this. They can guide towards the best way for you to overcome the way all this has affected your mental health. This is definitely not an unusual response to both the diagnosis and treatment for your cancer. Please keep us posted.
