I’ve not been doing a very good job of keeping my blog up to date. My apologies.
Today I completed my 33rd and final radiation treatment – I’ve graduated, and I’m sure that my cancer has been eradicated.
I want to thank everyone whom has prayed for me during the past 18 weeks of chemotherapy and radiation. I know that prayer works and I certainly appreciate your support.
I have been extremely fortunate in that my side-effects have been minimal. The treatment regimen was aggressive and the doctors “warned me” that most people have difficulty eating, swallowing, and working during treatment. Until the past week, my side-effects have been almost non-existent. Recently I’ve developed sores on my tongue and mouth. Although they did not feel “minor” to me, the doctors have assured me that most people get these types of side-effects after radiation treatment #10, not #30.
Of course, now come the follow-up doctor appointments and examinations for the next one- year, plus. Fatigue is likely to continue for awhile. My first CT scan is scheduled for 3 months out to confirm that the cancer is gone.
