I am about to complete my chemo tomorrow! (3 months worth)so far have tolerated it well. What I am concerned about now is that I will be having pelvic radiotherapy for 6 weeks & am quite scared of the side effects. Is there anyone out there who has had this & how did you go? Did it take you long to feel better? I will be back at work & expect to feel quite tired. I have listened & read about it but would like to hear from someone who has been there & done that.

this is the first time I have created a blog - not sure if I am doing it right. I have just been diagnosed with what I understand to be quite an agressive cancer & difficult to treat. I swing between not believing it & then sobbing with the helplessness I feel. My poor husband is devastated, I will tell my girls this weekend but will try not to tell them how bad it is. I will meet with a chemotherapist tomorrow, my husband & I will meet with our GP next week & I have arranged counselling for both of us next week. We are floundering, I feel I have a stalker in my midst who will get me no matter what I do.
