As I suspected, the procedure was very similar to a biopsy from a patient's perspective - i.e. not much to it. Took about
5 minutes from start to finish.
I told my wife I now glow in the dark.
The transponders that are now inside of me will help guide the radiation beams. Radiation begins January 28. Must wait for insides to heal up, just as I had to wait after biopsy to have my surgery last year.
