My mother was recently diagnosed with lung cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy and will soon be undergoing radiation treatments. One of the side effects she is experiencing from the chemo is low red-blood count causing extreme fatigue and anemia, low white-blood count which effects the immune system.
Because of fatigue she is too tired to leave the house other than for her treatments and doctor visits. She is really interested in hearing others experiences with chemotherapy and radiation. The side effects, pain, fears, does it get worse/better, etc.?
She would greatly appreciate you sharing your experiences with her during this difficult time.
