    Just finished Proton Therapy

    Seven weeks and 30 Rad treatments are behind me and Chemo will begin in about a month for a year. UGH

    How do you feel? I hope it went fairly well for you. I have a friend on the chemo and she says itís kind of rough. I hope itís smoother for you.

    I am just soooo tired and nauseated. I hope for a little improvement before I have to start chemo. I took chemo for a year in 2012 when first diagnosed and I feel like I lost a year because I felt so bad. Beginning July 15 I took 27 treatments of proton and three treatments of photon because the proton beam went down for a week. It was so disappointing but I had a great team working with me.

    Iím so sorry. Iíve heard itís pretty rough going through the radiation. The break hopefully will get you feeling a little better before chemo starts again. It is so unfortunate that the chemo for us is a year and we have to feel bad for so long. I hope you have lots of support and love.
