Chemoradiotherapy what to expect.
Hi, I'm collecting my chemo tomorrow and starting my radiotherapy on Tuesday, it's for 5 weeks mon to fri. I'm worried, scared and have a lot of anxiety about the whole thing however know the Drs have chose this pathway as they feel it's the best for me. Any hints, tips to get me through it? I feel if I do this bit however scarey I feel it is, and if it works to shrink the tumour then it's over to the surgeon to do his bit. On my scans I had a enlarged lymph next to it on the scan so they plan on trying to sort that too, I suppose I almost won't believe it's possible until I see it. I lost my mum suddenly in Nov 2016 and miss her so much, this really is a time where she would of been my rock, my youngest child has just turned 7 which adds to my worry. I also lost my cousin to lung cancer about 5 years ago aged 44 so as you can imagine that increases my anxiety, it's hard to see positive when your so worried. My other fear is that it's spread between my ct and MRI to now, it's been nearly 3 weeks, the nurses have tried to reassure me but my mind keeps racing. Love and hugs to all
