Hey there. It appears you are one tough lady; it's not fair you have to be.
As if cancer isn't enough; you get to deal with a fistula.
I hope your chemo isn't too tough on your body and you get the results we all fight for.
It's imperative you work closely with your onc team to care for your battered body. Fistulas (besides being terribly painful) can be dangerous.
Ill be thinking about you, Lynn.
