I was diagnosed on Sep 11, 2012 after a comlete hysterectomy and removal of an 18" tumor. Just finished 6 rounds of chemo with Carbo/Taxl and starting radiation first week of March. Differing opinions on what to expect from radiation, some say eat lost now, I will need the weight, my Doc says it won't be necessary to put on the pounds. Any advice on coping with radiation is appreciated, chemo wasn't great, and yet not horrible. I have no hair, eyebrows, or eyelashes and was not able to make it the local Look Good Feel Better, trying to not look like a ghost of my former self. Doing a pretty good job (most of the time) of staying upbeat and positive, but have my private pity party from time to time.
Thanks for any and all input and feedback.
