Diagnosed in April with primitive nueral epidermal tumor in uterus after complete hysterectomy (uterus, tubes and ovaries). In my 5th week of chemo and still struggling with the whole idea of having what may be a life-threatening cancer. Doing Chemo 3 weeks on and 1 week off. Doc calls it "aggressive" treatment. Wasn't prepared for chemo exhaustion and complete loss of appetite.... and the emotional depression I feel myself sliding into. Unable to work, drive, etc. NOTHING IS NORMAL! I've gone from an independent, on the go woman to a stuck at home, dependent, cancer patient. Guess I'm looking for coping ideas. Anyone else out there who's made it through to the other side of this?
