Today was my last (I hope) visit to radiation. After I take my last 3 pills of Xeloda tonight I'm done with that too. My experience was a thousand times better than I thought and you guys played a big part in it. You gave me tips and encouragement through the whole treatment. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Beside a mild skin irritation, occasional stomach ache and low energy I didn't have much problems. In fact the treatment got rid of my pretty sever pain where I couldn't even sit. Initially I had fever, cold sweats at night, blood in the stool. Now thats all gone. I was able to work through the entire time, didnt miss a day. The miracle of medicine, good diet, support of good people and positive attitude and gratitude.
I realize that the hard part is yet to come: Folfox, surgery, colostomy and who knows what else. But I learned one thing in this first round. The anticipation is lot worse than the actual event. And this gives me hope that I will be able to handle the future challenges as
Thank you all again for everything.
