Throat Blog — On the Schedule


Ok, just got my treatment schedule. I misunderstood the chemo part…it is more often than I thought.

Starting 10/2, Chemo every Monday for 6 weeks (with labs it will take 4-5 hours); Radiation every week day for 7 weeks (30-45 minutes per session).

I could list the possible side affects of the chemo, but just doing so would actually trigger some of those side affects. In any event, the side affects I actually get are the only ones that will matter, and no one knows what those are until they actually happen. They’ll be what they’ll be and I’ve got plenty of drugs to ease whatever they are. And, whatever they are can’t be worse than what this is going to cure.

So, I’ll try to aim for more cheese and less whine.
