I just found out Monday that I will be having a 6 month treatment of chemo and radiation.I will get a port put in on Monday and treatments will start at the end of February in order to allow my body to heal from my recent surgery. I have a rare cancer I am told, it originated in my appendix and after two years has come back just below my kidney. I just had surgery to remove my kidney and part of my large and small intestine. I am scared about the chemo, I know I will be receiving an aggressive form and I was told I would most likely lose my hair. This is all new to me, I did not get any treatments from my first occurance because they thought I was cured and that they got all of it. It feels better hearing from others that have gone through the chemo so I can have a better idea of what to expect. I will meet with my oncologist next Tuesday to learn more about the chemo treatments I will be getting. Any information is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
