Has your life been significantly altered due to the actual surgery or chemo part? (mental or physical)
Have you altered your diet or are you taking anything to attempt to prevent a reoccurrence?

I was actually one of the lucky ones that got through chemo without lasting side effects. I had some neuropathy issues but they dialed back my dosage to address that.

juliej wrote:Agree with horizon. I kind of divide my life into BC (before cancer) and AC (after cancer). The AC part is both more exhilarating (there's not a day I don't appreciate just being alive and able to do the things I love like rock climbing, hiking, running, etc.) and more terrifying (staring death in the eye does that to you). It's a double edged sword this experience and knowledge we share. But one thing I can guarantee you is the friends you make along the way will be the most amazing people you'll ever meet.
