    think we are all overwhelmed....

    hi brenda, think we are all overwhelmed!! i have stage 4 and had 39 radiation treatments and the take-home chemo pump for a week in the beginning and a week at the end of the radiation. good luck in your treatments!!! rely on your docter and the nurses, have found the nurses in the cancer center at both hospitals very caring.
