i was diagnosed 5 years ago, with lymph node involvement (was told it was 2 small ones picked up by the PET scan) and was given the all clear earlier this month. Like you, my oncologist told me that we were going for a cure and they were right. Even when I was told 2 weeks before the end of treatment that the tumour had not responded as well to treatment as they had expected (tenacious lump,) I was told to keep positive as I had another 10 radios left and the radio keeps on working for several weeks after treatment has ended. I had an mri 6 weeks after my last radio and all they could see was a 1cmx1mm shadow which was scar tissue.
i was anaemic as well and had a blood transfusion a few days before I started treatment and another 2 pints a week before I finished treatment.
i know I keep repeating myself but there are many 2b survivors out there.
You will be told by the team looking after you what to expect, I was given a large tub of aqueous cream (your skin may become red and sore during treatment and the cream will heplay if you apply it every day and twice a day) and told to drink plenty. I have seen a lot of ladies mention aloe Vera but for me it was cranberry juice mixed with water. I went off hot drinks during treatment!
treatment is doable, you will get tired but just don't fight it, just sleep if you want to sleep. I found going for a walk every day helped me but at the weekend I would just rest at home and enjoy having friends coming round!
Hope this help,
