After one more MRI, finally the doctor has given me a course of treatment: six weeks straight radiation and chemo( temodar) ... The chemo drug seven days a week, and radiation Monday through Friday for six weeks. I am 56 YO male in good health otherwise, and am not prone to any nausea like symptoms. What has been prescribed is six weeks on, and two weeks off.
My nationality is GREEK, so my appetite has always been good and is to this day. What can I expect from this aggressive cancer treatment described above? I am sure I will lose some hair but fortunately for me I have plenty! This is all new territory, completely uncharted waters for all of us. I don't know anybody who has had these treatments before and I am extremely anxious to start six weeks of straight chemo/radiation.
Thankfully my wife is extremely positive and is a great source of energy for me. Does his cancer fight really bring a strong person down so much, like you read about?
