In the last few months I have been diagnosed with melanoma, I have had two surgeries and now I'm cancer free which is excellent , but now I'm getting ready to start high dose interferon for 4 weeks and after that I've got 5 weeks of on sight radiation and then 11 months of low dose interferon. I'm scared to death! I have read so many horror stories that I'm unsure what to expect. I am 25 years old , I have two young children , my husband is in the military , and all of my family are 12 hours away , so most of this I'm facing alone so if anyone can give me an idea of what to expect I'd greatly appreciate it. Am I going to be able to do day to day activities , take my kids to the park , zoo ect. or am I going to be sick all of the time? How am I going to make it through this next year without my kids feeling horrible for me? I don't want them to see there mommy sick all of the time when they she me as being fine now. Please anyone who's been through this help me know what to expect. Thank you.
