Hi everyone, I had my first round of treatment today. I had 3 hours of chemo and a quick zap with radiation. Felt okay until about 9 or 10 last night. Throat got really dry, couldn't seem to get it saturated enough...slept with ice on the night stand.
It was an extremely emotional event for me and my family. Prior to starting treatment, we met Palliative Care for emotional support. My family has never seen that severe emotional, scared, and angry side of me. We all cried together and prayed. I'm ready to do battle, I'm ready to do battle, I'm ready to do battle...that's my mantra.
Thanks to those who have encouraged me. I have been so depressed and unsure of what to expect. I know I'm gonna make it. One day soon I'll be able to say I'm cancer free.
