My treatments begin Monday morning. Since I last posted about this, there have been some tough choices made. I had to decide between two doctors recommending different treatment methods. After much research and soul searching, I chose what I believe is the more aggressive plan with the best longterm outlook. It will not be easy, but I might as well take advantage of being in such good health (except for the cancer).
I begin the first of three rounds of induction chemotherapy on Monday morning, repeating every 3 weeks. Next will come several weeks of chemo/radiation therapy. If necessary, there may be some cleanup surgery after that.
I have set up a site at MyLifeline.org to keep family and friends informed and give them a way to leave messages.
The outpouring of support from the 50+ and other BikeForums members has been amazing and has meant a lot to me and my family. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers as the I finally get to start fighting back.
