Cause: Prior Treatment

I am pleased to announce that my next eye exam will take place in 6 months. Six months? Well, that can’t be a major problem!  

I have officially been diagnosed with a mild case of Radiation Retinopathy. Whole Brain Radiation is the cause. The upside is the ‘mild’ part. If/when a transition occurs to moderate or beyond, treatment exists.

I am not unique when I say, I hate that the treatment of cancer comes with many destructive side effects. Do I get a badge for living long enough to experience them? Cancer sucks.

    I am telling your cancer to f off mixed with positive vibes. Kim you are so amazing and kind and selfless. I don’t care if that’s prop English or not. Love and miss you. I will say it 1 more time f*** cancer and the cell it rode in on. knowing you anything can happen and it’s always positive. I say so.

  4. You know, you can be a pioneer in cancer treatment without QUITE so many side effects … sorry to hear the retinopathy, but glad it’s mild and some treatment is available later if needed. Hugs, sistah.
