A week has gone after the last chemo and radiotherapy session and I am feeling much better, just a bit of nausea which started now, but I guess both Xeloda and radio are still at work in my body.
I am a bit worried about the CT scan to my lungs in two weeks. It is to see if the 8 mm node changed with Xeloda, which would restage me as 4.
I see that when I can train strength or dance I am much more positive, while spending a lot of time at home makes me more negative.
I am also worried about adjuvant chemo, I guess I should just focus on these two months of break and then the operation, but it is difficult to concentrate myself on the present.
