Updated 1/10/15 - It has been 4 years of being cancer free!!! Last radiation was end of May 2010 and Surgery to remove remaining cancer was mid December 2010! Still have the side effects including lack of saliva Missing saliva glands on right side) and swallowing problems. Original post - I am 61. Spring,summer & fall has been camping and kayaking (floating, not rapids). My husband said I'll be kayaking before I know it. I also watercolor paint. I think that will help me get through this. I don't have a photo so I used one of my paintings in progress.
