Treatment plan (if all goes well and as planned) …
They spoke of inserting a picc line or port, instead of and IV for chemotherapy.
We are going to try without doing this, even though chemotherapy can cause permanent damage to veins. This is scary stuff!
“only 4 pokes” … meaning:
1. Starting this coming Wednesday/Thursday, one chemotherapy treatment session every 3 weeks for 12 weeks. That’s only 4 times! I can do this!
2. I get a 3-4 week break.
3. Then, 3.5-4 weeks of radiation, every day, Monday to Friday.
That’s it! It’s still a long haul but about half of what they originally proposed, which would have been too intense for me.
Then … let the healing and recovery begin! At light speed. At GodSpeed, get me to a cure!
