Hey Gang,
I finally finished my last two shots of Radiation, yesterday and today. I had to stop for 2 weeks, I have never been that sick in my life , the diarrhia I experienced (10 days straight) was quite maddening. I swear, if it went a little longer they were going to have to put me in a rubber room, hopefully w/ a toilet!!!
Anyways, feeling much better, I have 2 more doses of Chemo to go and after that I'll get a CT Scan to see where I stand.

    Congratulations on finishing! I still have vivid memories of the diarrhea I had with radiation -- memorable. Hope you get feeling 100% soon.

    Hi Buster,
    Good to hear from you and I'm happy for you that the radiation is over. The chemo/radiation combo was definitely the worst for me. Sending positive vibes for that cat scan report.
