I just got back from my last chemo and radiation treatments. I remain tired and sick to my stomach but that will change soon. I lost weight, but I had it to lose. I will have my CT scan on April 17 to make sure this is all gone. I am counting on it. Thanks for your prayers.

    Congratulations! I'm sure you will be feeling better very soon. And what a nice feeling to not have to carry the pack around anymore. Go celebrate when you're feeling up to it! Good luck with the CT scan.

    Once you are done feeling sick to your stomach make sure you take a bit of time to celebrate!

    thanks, when I do feel like eating again I will celebrate. this nausea is terrible. this is much worse than the first time. I think the radiation being so close to my stomach has caused.
