I am a 3 time cancer survivor. 16 years ago I had stage 3 breast cancer and then early 2021 (I believe) I was diagnosed with stage 3 anal cancer. Two weeks into my treatment for anal cancer I was diagnosed with breast cancer again. I was so overwhelmed I made a radical decision to have a bi lateral mastectomy. I have been coming to terms with that decision and I continue to due things that bring my attention to being flat. I'm happy. My worry is mostly my nauseous feeling. It seems I am more nauseous than not. I am post 13 months treatment and have had favorable scans and exam but the nausea doesn't leave. Are there others out there that experience these feelings?

    i continue to have nausea and fatigue & weakness , tremors , and cognitive malfunction

    however I’m only about 6 weeks post Chemo Radiation

    so perhaps that’s “ normal”

    my dr expected me to recover in about 3 weeks

    i had a modified NIGRO protocol for anal cancer of 4 weeks daily Chemo-Rafiation

    however I continued to get burns week 5 & 6

    so I dunno

    any comments welcome

    its a bit depressing to be so slow now

    the PA lovingly ( I think) referred to me as a snowflake patient

    im so glad I insisted on less than 6 weeks of treatment

    im sure it would’ve done permanent damage
