morena platinada

I started a new treatment today, a platinum-based chemotherapy combined with a diabetic drug. I have been repeating to myself: no big deal it is just another treatment... I know it is not true, but for now (and while my nausea is controlled) I am going to believe that this carboplatinum chemo will be a breeze. Could it be that if I fool my brain I will not experience any of the nasty side effects?

A harmless mass of fat

When I first heard of Sarcomas I was being diagnosed with one. That was seven years ago. At the time I did not associate any malignancy to the word sarcoma. I though that my retroperitoneal liposarcoma was just a harmless mass of fat.
