My friend Julie is undergoing her first chemo treatment today. She had a tumor removed from her colon around the first of June. There was no lymph involvement, but her cancer was staged at 2b.
She has done a little research on the web, but has found it to me more frightening than helpful. I am hoping to get a feel for what she can expect from her course of chemo. She is to have 5 daily treatments a month for 6 months, to be followed up by radiation.
All of her friends are just sick with worry for her. We don't know what to expect either, and of course, want to help in in ways that are most useful to her.
Any info or links would be appreciated.
