I thought I would share…
It’s been three months since I finished my treatment and like all of you I was scared and thought everyday,what was to come?
The confusion and uncertainties really were so overwhelming so I wanted to post in this section so that you could read something that would help.
I really hope you all take the time to get familiar with navigating through the different forums in new posts as well as older posts as it will really help give you reassurance and it will aid you through this journey. This forum is a really special place and if you are not afraid to post you will begin to feel a part of something very special!
I finished my treatment in sept and have been back to work for a month now(I could have gone earlier but already had forms so I listened to the dr) as each week passes I feel more and more like the old me. I am getting more and more strength in my pelvis area and feel that the effects from the radio are finally subsiding so I’m not constantly reminded of the treatment every time I go up the stairs or get up from the floor after playing with my little one.
As you start your treatment remember that it will get easier. We do all recover eventually some are quicker then others.
Many people have asked me what was the hardest part of this and I always answer the hardest part is what the diagnosis does to you mentally. So pls remember to take care of yourself physically but do get help if you are suffering mentally as mental health is just as important as physical health!!
Good luck to you all who are just starting and trust in yourself that you will conquer this demon. In the end you will endure!!!
Hugs to you all
