I was sitting in the oncology chemo room waiting to be hooked up to the pump for the first time. As I was sitting there, my eyes tearing up, I wondered if this was really happening to me. It seemed so surreal... Fast forward to the present - I survived and am almost 3 years post treatment. Scans, labs and checkups have been fine. I have an appt with colorectal dr next month. In June it's labs and appt with oncologist. The appts used to be the same month. I think I've adjusted to the new normal. I get tired - like my plug has been pulled and bathroom visits take longer. During treatment there were days when I wondered if I would make it. I didn't really have any pain, just felt crappy.
For those of you beginning  your journey and those of you in treatment, you'll make it like the rest of us on this site. There will be good days and bad days - just like before treatment - Lol!
Best wishes to everyone!
