I am starting my first round on Tuesday. Radio and Chemo, Temozowossit for the chemo. Luckily sounds more mild than yours.
I hope things do get better for you, and would second and third (and forth) what you said about nurses.
Good luck to you.

Hey all. I got about the worst start to the new year you can imagine. Being diagnosed with this thing in my head. Sadly it is the incurable variety for those not familiar with the acronym.
Getting treated out of St Vincents here in Melb who have been awesome so far. The initial op was a big success as these things go. Everything removed they could see, but of course it is coming back. Radio and Chemo start Tuesday and tonight I am damn scared, first time I have cried since the first night I got home after hospital.
You know it is hard where you are a 37 year old guy who was just happily and quietly drifting through life with no desire than a life full of small content quiet little things.
Mercifully I don't have a partner or kids, not sure I could put either through this, but I do have a semi-sainted mother, and a big network of friends. Still finding it hard to talk to them about it all, so here I am.
PS Those things on painkillers about "If symptoms persist" totally accurate and wise advice 😛
