well alot of you have seen my post when I had a allergic reation to the last Chemo.I had two rounds to go.I went today and the Dr.talked to me and said we are done with Chemo.I couln,t beleive it.She thinks I will be fine without the last two.She said it was two bad a allergic reaction to give another one.She would have to start all over with a new cocktail and she didn,t think it was necesary.So I start Radiation in the next week or so.I am very happy about it.So now I can join the radiation girls.Any advice would be appriatted.Thanks.Love and Prayers.(Pat).

    Pat .. I am so jealous ... Not with the 2 allergic
    reactions, hospital visits, or rashes -- just at the thought of being finished with Chemo in general. I'm half there .. just finished week 9 out of 18.

    Good luck with the Rad's. Do the Gals on Rad's have hair ???

    Congratulations on your "graduation"
    from chemo to rads!! I'm so glad that the doc let you graduate "early" because I know how hard that last round of chemo was and how scared you were. God is good. Will miss you as a chemo chick but am cheering you on as a rad woman. Lola

    That's great! I am happy to
    That's great! I am happy to hear you don't have to endure more! RAD treatments are so fast, you are in and out quicker than it takes you to change into the gown! I am in the middle of my 4th week and it seems to have flown by!

    great news
    I'm so happy fr you. I had 4 treatments of chemo, just ended 6 wks ago. On my 4th wk of rads. I was so sick with chemo, rads to me is much "better"....side effects breast area warm, breast area change color to pink, fatugue, tired. I was out of work while chemo but working F/T while rads. I will pray for you.........

    Thank you for the update. I was thinking about your Chemo journey.
    You still need a plenty of rest and good nutrition.
    You on your way to finish your treatment, just keep going.
