Hi everyone,
I just got back from my first cruise. I had a wonderful time and was able to relax! The time flew by.
My ct results of my abdomen were normal. Finally some good news!
Now it's back to reality and getting rid of cancer. I'm getting my port tomorrow and starting chemo next week. While I'm not looking forward to it, it will be a relief to feel like I'm doing something proactive.
Thanks to everyone who replied to my post on folfox. I feel like I now know what to expect. I'll hold off on getting a wig and see what happens. It doesn't sound like I'll need one.
Stay positive and have a great day!

I am glad that you had a great vacation. We went on our first cruise in March. It was awesome.

I wish all the best as you begin your new treatments.
