You've got one heck of a positive attitude.....love that about you!!

Don't know if you're having internal or external radiation.  I had external, 33 sessions as had one lymph node test positive for cancer after my original diagnosis '09.  My take on radation, it was more difficult for me from standpoint of intestinal/GI issues.  Lucky for me I worked from home and had quick access to the bathroom...if catching my drift!!  

Today some 4 yrs since end of all treatments do have long-term sideaffects.  Just need to watch what I put in my mouth as too many raw foods cause cramping, plus other things.  I realize this is simply a part of treatments, no sweat~.

Yes....bring it on~~

And we'll have one awesome party when you're finished with the chemo and radiation!  I don't have any experience with radiation but please know that I'm sending lots of prayers and good wishes that you have minimal side-effects.

Big hugs,

I believe attitude is at least half the battle. It looks like you have what it takes to take it on. 

You stay strong too -
