Thanks so much for all of the encouragement. I really don't feel afraid of the rads like I did chemo. I know it is alot easier than chemo. I just have one small problem with memories of my mom having her rads. She had lung cancer in 1988 and went through rads. They burned her so bad that her chest and neck looked like a blackberry. She was unable to eat or drink because her throat was so bad. She lost a large amount of weight, and she did not have any to loose. I know rads have come a long way but everytime they put me on that table I just think about
my mom and what she went through. She fought a good battle but eventually lost it. Okay enough on that.
Chantry where are you in your treatments, have you finished chemo? I hope so. I still have my wig on but my hair is growing and getting much fuller. My DH tells me to go without it but I don't feel comfortable yet. I worry about
my skin too it is dry and I have fair skin, I hope I don't get too burned.
Skeeter congrats on your one year anniversary coming up. Good luck on your mamogram. Think positive thoughts, it will be just fine. I feel like I know you too there are so many ladies here that I have formed a bond with. I would love to have a get together. That way we can put faces with names.
Ellen, Judy & Deb thanks for all of your help during this time. I will probably be asking you all kinds of questions in the next few weeks. They sent home some samples of Aquaphor cream for me to use. I guess it works good. What creams worked good for you?
