Hi ladies, hope everyone is well. This is my first post!
I started chemoradiation today, am on a plan for 5 x cisplatin and 28 x external radiotherapy followed by brachytherapy. Today went well, nothing awful happened and this evening I've just been tired and a bit groggy, but also have the tail end of a cold so that's probably not helping. I've read lots of posts on here about the side effects being quite severe yet the nurses today were telling me that all side effects are controlled by medication so I shouldn't really have any problems. Are they trying to protect me or is it really not that bad? I would love to hear some personal experiences, good or bad!
By the way, I'm Tania, 29 from Rochester in Kent. I live with my fiance Tyler and our cat Lulu. Unfortunately egg harvesting wasn't an option for me so I will never have babies but I will deal with that grief later.
Thanks in advance for any replies!
