That was the opening statement during my first meeting with the oncologist.
So, chemo-therapy begins this coming 28th. Mu;tiple pills everyday and IV treatment every 2 weeks.. Many side-effects, including an advertion to cold. Cold temps. Cold drink. Cold food.
There will be 12 treatments over 24 weeks.. Nausea loss of appitite, etc. are also part of what I can expect.
Internet searches say I have an 83% chance of recovery. The doctor says maybe 60%, if lucky, but probably closer to 50%.
Boy, thats encouraging.
Looks like I have a lot to look forward to over the next 6 months. Yippee!?
On a sidebar, the incision is healing nicely but I have contracted a yeast infection in that area. Hopefully the powder I've been given will do the job. I didn't know guys could get a yeast infection, LOL.
Social Security still continues to deny my disability claim. That fight continues.
So, the odds are that I will get to see this Christmas but I shouldn't really make any long term plans beyond that.
Please bear with me as I relate whats happening. I know it will be boring to some and upsetting to others but I am going to try and keep it real.
I am still working on my review of television and should have that posted tomorrow or Monday.
Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.
