What to expect with chemo and radiation?
I have T2N1a rectal cancer. In March I had an endoscopic procedure to remove the tumor which perforated the rectal wall. In June I had a Low Anterior Resection surgery which resulted in a temporary colostomy bag; the tumor was also regrowing. I meet with the Oncologist on 7/19 to determine the chemo & radiation regiment.
I have 2 little ones (3 &5) and my hubby is turning 40 in Sept. I want to try my best to keep life somewhat normal for my kids and also for me. I’m planning a birthday bash for my husband and I’m getting a lot of grief about it because I’ll be going through treatment. For me it’s a great way to distract myself from this terrible all consuming disease.
Does anyone have advice on actively going through chemo/radiation?
