hi everybody, I'm Erin, I'm new here so I thought I'd tell everyone a little about myself. I'm 17 right now, I'll be 18 in Sept. I was diagnosed when I was 14 years old (8th grade). I had three intense rounds of chemo therapy and 14 radiation treatments. I was pretty lucky considering my entire therapy only lasted a little over 3 months and I only had to have one blood transfusion throughout the whole ordeal. My three year anniversary is coming up here pretty soon. I went for one of my 6 month check-ups a couple weeks ago and the scans all looked good. The only problem I'm having now is the energy level. I still haven't fully gotten it back. When I went to the doctor last he checked my thyroid and I guess I have a horomone that's too high or something to that affect so I have to go back next week and have it checked again. I'm still a little unsure of what it all means but atleast the cancer isn't back!! Well I guess that's about it for me!
