Thank you everyone!!!

I finished chemo this last Wednesday and I have 5 more radiation treatment left. I was given a 1 week break from radiation due to the pain becoming almost unbearable and the condition of my skin, which is raw and terrible looking

This coming Wednesday I will go in for another CT Scan to determine if the cancer has spread/reduced in size/stayed the same, etc. and determining what the results are is when we'll find out whats in store for us next. Judging from what I know...odds are I'll be going in for a second round of chemo. I will come that over the radiation any day. I hate radiation.

Thank you all so much for your continued prayers and good thoughts...I'm so deeply grateful to you all...truly, thank you.

Fingers crossed & prayers for good news with the scan. That radiation burn is PAINFUL. I hope you have found something that gives you relief.

Chin up!!

Love isn't what you say, it's what you do.

You all are so wonderful!! Thank you for thinking of us!!

I had my scan yesterday with my radiologist.

It hasn't spread which is great news! However it hasn't shrunk as much as they were hoping for either. So, I'll have 5 more radiation treatments starting Monday and then we'll go see my oncologist for the next plan of action. Which will mean another round of chemo with two different drugs this time.

At some point this month, we'll be going to MD Anderson to another oncologist for a second opinion on my treatments. During the biopsy phase MD Anderson did a 2nd opinion on the tissue sample and they did confirm the same diagnosis...so I feel confident in what I've been treated for is correct. Now I just want to make sure the actual treatment is the right course of action.

I'm very grateful it hasn't spread...just wish it would go away and I could have a day without pain or worry. And I'm always so fucking tired...I'm sick of that too

And that made me literally yell, YEAHHHHH in my office!

You got this. You have the prayers of THOUSANDS and one of, if not THE best, cancer facilities for your treatment and care.

I'm sorry the road is long and bumpy. Just know that my prayers (and I'm sure many many others) are unceasing for your complete healing.

DS, you can see I have been here a LONG time, but I rarely post as my situation isn't dynamic now. But, I wanted to wish you the very best outcome in your cancer treatment. I have a childhood friend who is going through this now, and it is a roller coaster. But, I hope next year will find you free and clear!!

That IS great news!

MD Anderson is a great place! I know you're in good hands. I'm sorry you have to do more radiation, but I understand that it has to be done. Keep on AK-47-ing the shit out of it!

Tired? DS, My sense is you get more done now than I ever did at my best, tired or not. Just sayin'....

I'm happy about the good part of your news, sad about the rest, especially the pain and the weariness/lack of energy and more chemo.

I hope MDA + your oncologist come up with a winning strategy.
