And So It Begins

For the most part, I have been just sitting back and "lurking" on here. I was first diagnosed with anal cancer on 3/15/2012. At first they thought they got it surgically, but to paraphrase Nietzsche, "That which does not kill me grows back and tries again."

I started chemotherapy and radiation therapy today. I'm getting mytomycin and 5-FU (I wonder how many of you have the same obscene nickname for the stuff that I do?) and so far no nasty side effects. So what should I expect? I'd love to hear any "home remedies" you might know of for the side effects.

Just don't wish me luck; wish me success instead. <*** src="/sites/all/libraries/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/***/smiley-laughing****" alt="Laughing" title="Laughing" border="0" />
