Anyone else like me. The sound of the radiation robots and the isolation of brachytherapy. Just the thought of being immobilized I with the radiating package inside then hooked up to the computer that delivered treatment. Thinking of it makes me uneasy. Now dealing with after effects and thiink my tumour is growing again

Yes, i think alot of us have/had some sort of PTSD post cancer treatment. Afterall there was something trying to kill us and we had to go through great lengths and suffering to stop it! My anxiety has greatly reduced over time, but i just want you to know that what you are feeling is VERY COMMON! Good luck with everything and may God Bless you !

You are definitely not alone. The day before my infusions, I am in panic mode. I can smell everything from the soap in the treatment room bathroom to the sounds of the machines. Thank God for the nurses and making me feel very comfy. This is my second round of chemo and hopefully my last. Reading helps me take my mind off reality. That and eating something you really love the day before. My go to is ice cream. Comfort food. Hope your situation improves. Prayers to you and all of use that are suffering through this horrible sickness. Diagnosed with colorectal cancer that metastasized to liver cancer. October of 2017. Still kicking!
