I have victory over the cancer mass and the chemotherapy. Two weeks ago I finished the treatment, went on vacation, walked 3 miles while there.

I have to get mediport out and incisional hernia repaired but other than that, the only side effect I'm waiting for to leave is the neuropothy and in time, it will.

I am thankful for this discussion board and all the info I received. Because of this board I was able to make the dicision to request my last two treatments to be given without the oxiliplatin drug. I knew my body had enough but the expdriences shared on this forum helped me to remain true to my gut feeling! So glad I did!!!!!

Blessing to everyone on this journey and I pray that everyone will have the success I did and we all continue to live ON PURPOSE!!!!!

Congrats on finishing chemo and celebrating with such an excellent vacation!
Your post brought to mind a 1960s song, "Oh Happy Day.". I think I hear Andrea Crouch sing it at a concert on/about 1978. I wish he had recorded it, I loved his rendition.

Corey,

Thanks for sharing! BTW, I sent you a PM about the book you mentioned a while back.
I'm glad you're feeling good. It will take a while to get over the side effects of chemo- probably a good six months or more. Hopefully it will be sooner in you, but give your body time and allow yourself to rest. Exercising is great- glad you're already doing it!

Hugs,
Lisa

I have to go back and take a look...Thank you for these words. Nueropothy kicked in which is strange since it wasn't bad during treatment! I will now take your advise since retruning from vacation and allow myself time to rebuild instead of jumping back into the ratrace of life! I've changed through this so I must maintain the change and not let others to pull me back and draw the life out of me.... Much love

Doesn't it feel wonderful to be done with chemo?!!!

I'm hoping hernia repair and removing the port go smoothly for you, and the neuropathy starts to clear. Celebrate life, but at your own pace. It takes months to get through chemo, so we need to give ourselves months to fully recover.

Thank you for your well wishes Kathryn and the advise..my mind want to get back into life but I have been taking your advise. The neuroppthy in my hands and toes are getting stronger...I know that it will begin to clear and eventually leave but walking through the process of the nerves repairing!!!!! Hernia surgery was successful and I am sooooo thankful not to have to have anymore chemo drugs in my body!

Thanks again!

Wonderful news. It truly was a great feeling knowing "no more drugs". Oxy was a terrible drug. I'm sure that's why my neuropathy is still hanging on in my toes. It did get better over the first year but I'm still waiting for the nerves to repair in my toes. They may or may not I am told but it's not that bad.
