Topic: Radiation is kind of kicking my butt
So, brief history on my for those of you who don't know me. I'm 32, diagnosed 5-5-11 with intrahepatic CC after successful resection with 1 close margin of 2mm. Completed 3 cycles of Gem/Cis. Moved on to 6 wks of chemo radiation with Xeloda. I have 8 treatments to go. 3 regular treatments then I move on to the "boost" I have been feeling great up until about a wk ago. It started out with bad acid reflux so I was started on prilosec. Then it started to hurt when I swallow. Now I'm really nauseous, even vomited twice over the weekend. I've started taking some of my prn's compazine and zofran during the day and ativan at night. I was really hesitant to take the ativan but it really has been helping me sleep and I don't have that drugged/groggy feeling. I've lost 4lbs which is really upsetting to me since I am already a tiny thing. I'm a size 2 and I fear if I loose more weight I will need to start shopping in the children's department store. But, again, only 8 treatments to go. I will be finished before Thanksgiving. So there is a light at the end of the tunnel!
I hope all of you are well!
