Hit a snag
November 11, 2012 at 7:30 PM
Friday was my last radiation treatment. I had a heck of a time because of the lung mets I have a hard time laying flat on my back because it's hard to breathe. I've been living on lorazepam to get me thru. Two times I had to cancel because I panicked so badly. They ended up giving me 16 instead of 22. They gave me X-rays instead of ct scans & that shortened the time on the table plus they strengthened the radiation. They gave me a certificate of completion. You'd think I'd be happy I was done with it all. But this weekend I feel like I'm back to square one with being tired & depresses. Couldn't leave the house all weekend I felt so weak & breathless. Anybody experience anything like this? I know I will get back to normal but this just threw me backwards it feels. Happy I can come here & vent. Marilyn
