this is just a quick catch-up for those who might be searching for some first-hand information and experience from a cancer patient.
I remember when I was searching for cancer patients’ blog at the beginning of my treatment and found quite few blogs where the posts finished as soon as the person finished their treatments. Then I thought Did the treatments actually go well or wrong? Why the person haven’t posted anything since then? Are they living a happy life now or did their story have a bad end and that’s why their posts stopped?
And hence my today’s post.
Guys, I’m doing great. It’s almost precisely 6 months after my last chemo and almost a year since I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s. The time flew by unbelievebly fast! So if you’re at the beginning of your journey to regaining your health back, don’t worry, you’ll have it back in a glance of the eye!
Also one of my big worries during my treatments was the hair loss. I can cheer you up guys, I never lost all of my hair. I lost most of it, it didn’t look particularly good, but I actually managed going out without any wig till the end of treatments and actually never used it (just few times when I really felt ugly). I believe it was medicinal mushrooms that saved my hair but who knows why I ‘got lucky’ with my hair. You can check below pics of my hair at the end of my 6 months’ treatment and after 5 months. It grew back quite quickly, isn’t it?
I am now seeing my doctor every 3 months and watching out for any symptoms reoccurence and doctor is checking up my blood as well so hopefully all will stay great till at least the age of 80 and the bitch will never come back! That’s my plan now! :))
Heads up, think positive and you’ll be fine!
