Its going to be a tough week...can't wait until its done! Things are starting to really hurt again, like they did before I was hospitalized last time. I think we all thought it was the 5 FU that was causing most of the trouble, but it seems that radiation is messing up my system all on its own! But, I've got to tough it out--can't stop now! Only 5 to go!
If there is anyone reading this who has to go thru the same radiation I'm going thru, please know that most people don't have side effects as bad as I do. I talked to a younger gal (early 30's?) when she had just 2 treatments left and her biggest complaint was tiredness. She napped everyday after radiation. Hers is the more common reaction, but everyone is different.
I've been throwing myself a little pity party today--but I'm done with that now. I'm alive, and have a wonderful family helping me...I have SO much to be grateful for!! Time to count my blessings!!
Blessings to all!
