Hi everyone,

So my latest update is I just got finished with my fertility treatment and officially have fertilized embryos for the future! Which is such a great feeling to have considering my odds are against me. I will be starting my first week of chemo next week as well as my radiation for the next 6 weeks. I'm so scared and nervous to start but i'm ready. Wish me luck and i'll keep the status updates as I go!

Wishing you luck on all accounts. It is usually a good feeling to actually get started with treatment. One day closer to be done I guess ???? I will have you in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so glad that you had those fertilized embryos done! That is really great. I understand that you are nervous. Try to take good care of yourself this week. Eat well and rest. The treatment, for me, was really not bad at all. I think that eating lots of protein, avoiding any topical lotions, keeping the area clean was key.

I had stage 2 cancer. Make sure that you have everything that you need. I used a sports bottle filled with room temperature spring water to squirt on myself as I urinated. It helped. One very improtant thing is to try to have your teeth thoroughly cleaned this week to avoid mouth sores. I had my teeth cleaned a few days before treatment and never got any mouth sores. From the very first day of chemo, start rinsing your mouth twice a day with luke warm water with a tspn. of salt in it.

You can do this! Soon, this will be in your past. You will be in my prayers while you go through this. Believe!

Sounds like you are now ready to take on this challenge and I think you'll do fine.  You seem very determined to beat this and I know you will!  Good luck and please keep us posted!

I am so glad you have sorted that out. What a massive issue to have to consider before even starting treatment. Don't forget, it is doable, & it goes by quite quickly. I did a countdown on my treatments & I couldn't believe how quickly it was completed.  Keep us updated & ask for any support you need. 

Lots of experience here! I am so glad I found this site. It made a huge difference, well, all the people here did...... Liz
