2013

Not a Place to Stop

As 2012 came to an end, I was right in the middle of radiation treatments that were scheduled to last well into January of 2013. The tumor was growing on my psoas muscle and caused excruciating pain. Pain had forced me to go on pain medication just a few weeks earlier; and honestly, I think I would have done anything to get relief from that pain.

I was right in the midst of the 25 radiation treatments that I was scheduled to have. This was the first time I had been treated with radiation and I was pleasantly surprised that the first radiation treatment resulted in the pain completely subsiding. I was thrilled when I was able to come completely off of the pain medication. Dr. Reyes’ nurse had told me this was a good possibility and I was glad that it worked out that way.
