  • Your treatment is absolutely in the correct line, don't worry at all. As for the hardness, many people have lingering hardness in the incision lines for quite a few months or even more. However, it the hardness is bothering you, it is always advisable to meet your Surgical Oncologist and get it cleared from him / her that this is normal.

  • thank you so much sir.expecting your guidance and support in future also.

  • Hi trpl - don't worry at all - think like now 2 are over, then will be the 3rd, then 4th - one day you will find all chemos are finished.

    We all have gone thro the same phase. Don't take tensions - be brave - we have to fight the cancer.

    Take a healthy diet, drink lots of fluids

  • hi trpl be strong and take care of your nutrition

  • Leave worrying for now...do things that make u happy...all will be well n over soon. ..whatever u experience are the sise effecta of the medicine that will eventually cure you. ..it becomes easier to handle
