So, today was the last day of the 25minute radiation appointments for my dad. He is SOOOO excited! Tomorrow starts the 10 minute appointments and they will continue for 4 more weeks. Yes, four more weeks. I'm not sure why, but they decided to make the treatment 8 weeks, instead of 7.
The side effects have been ok. The GI side effects seem to be controlled well with Imodium. My dad did say that he is starting to feel sore in the entire area. After doing crunches (yes, he works out regularly), he said that his whole abs were more sore in a weird way. The RO said that the entire area is a little inflamed and advised against doing crunches for now. He is not off the hook for walking though :)
Thank you for your prayers and support! We are half way through this round!
