Week 2 almost down - 4 weeks left

I've started to count the weeks rather than the days. Not sure why, but it just makes me feel better.

Surprisingly I feel very close to fine this week.  Radiation and Chemo going ok, I am tired easily, not much of an appetite, constipated,  but that's about it as far as side effects all so far manageable.

I'm hoping next week goes the same and fast. (fingers crossed)

I’m so glad your week went by quickly and easily. It’s great you are being treated at MSKCC. I hope the commute back and forth to NJ isn’t too difficult on you XO

Try taking magnesium one time in the morning for your constipation.

October 5

I had a mass which I thought was hemorrhoid. I had a dream that it was cancer and mentioned it to my primary doctor who referred me to a colon rectal surgeon. I had no bleeding, but also had high pressure, In fact, I've had no high blood pressure since the mass was removed.


Starting on 8/29, with last one on 10/5
