I went in to see the radiologist yesterday and got my little tattoos and a scan. I start radiation on Monday. It will be five days a week for 5-6 weeks. Honestly, I am really scared. I am scared of the complications, how my skin will hold up, and what I will look like afterward.
A couple of the biggest complications that frighten me have to do with my heart and lung being right there, the possibility of getting skin cancer down the line, and delayed wound healing in the future when I get surgeries there again. That's just to name a few, but there is a long list of things that could go wrong with radiation, as with everything.
I got called i
Broke from my battle with cancer. Made a gofundme.
I created a GoFundMe. I honestly never wanted to do this. Asking for help is hard for me and it always makes me feel uncomfortable, but I really need help. I feel desperate, stressed out, and a little panicked about money a lot of the time. If this goes well, it will be one less thing for me to worry about right now. Thank you. PS. Please spread the word, if you don't mind.
