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.
