    Radiation (Internal radiation): My first internal radiation was horrible. I didn't have enough pain medicine in my system when they took the devices out. It was the worst pain I have ever been in. They put me under the second time and it went a LOT better.

      My system was so screwed up I had to take pills to make me go, then take others to make me not go. I was either constipated or diariaha. Just tell the dr. they will give you what ever you need, it is a common problem. Good luck to you!!

    Well, I am done with chemo and external radiation for now. Onto internal radiation! I am really nervous about it... My doctor told me about the process and it all seems kinda scary. But I gotta be strong and do it anyway. Anything to help get rid of my cancer :)

    I hate the reaction the word cancer brings about in people. Chemo as well. I do like being the person to prove what they believe about cancer wrong though.

    On a different note, I never thought I would end up with any kind of cancer, let alone at twenty years old. Just really thinking about it still kinda scares me. I know I'll get through it though. I just can't wait till I'm cancer free and can tell people that I beat it. Let people know that cancer isn't as scary as some people make it out to be.
