My Oncologist says stage 2.


What kind of treatment?



I go on Tuesday for a heart test and a lung test and to get prepped for a port a cath (I think that is right). Then I go back Wednesday to have the port a cath put in. Then back on Thursday for blood work, to see the doc again, and then start chemo. He said chemo would last 2 1/2 hours. Not sure if it will be that everytime or if it will be longer, I forgot to ask that question on Thursday when I seen him. But they seem to think that chemo will take care of it, no surgery needed. There is a slight chance that I might have to take some radiation at the end of chemo to take care of anything left behind from the chemo. But we won't know that until we see how well it responds to the chemo. Thursday will be my first chemo treatment so I really don't know what to expect. I am just glad we are gonna beat it.
