Jean you can do this. I know the positioning is painful but just keep thinking of getting rid of any bad cells that may still be hanging around. And as Kath said it is done very quickly. The simulation takes a long time to get you set up. But when you go in for your actual treatment you will be surprised how fast it is over. I'm in my third week and I count during the actual treatment time and it totals just over 1 minute. It takes them only a minute to two to position you and then they leave the room to start. All told from the time you lay down to the time you get to move your arm again it will be less than 5 minutes.
Now keep in mind everyone reacts differently to treatment but I have had 11 and have no sign of burning. I'm using a lotion called Biafine, from what I've heard it works the best. I needed a prescription for it after I used the first small tube they gave me at the clinic. It's expensive stuff too but so far so good for me.
What time is your treatment? We will all want to be there with you for this. I'll be holding your hand. You'll do great!
Hugs and love,
