2 months into this crazy cancer world….
My name is Samantha and on August 12th, 2012 my life changed forever. I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. When my family heard the news they broke down and cried. I cried for a minute then realized tears are not going to help me kick this cancer in the bum! My doctors were surprised that I was even there because I looked so healthy and the fact that I had AML since I’m 20 years old. I did one round of chemo (7+3 kind) and a round of consolidation chemo also. I have another 2 days of chemo and 4 days of radiation as part of my Bone Marrow Transplant work up. I’m nervous and excited for my BMT. It will mean that this nightmare will be over, but I’m nervous about the process of healing from the BMT. I would love to hear anyone’s experience with a BMT and radiation.
