Geebra, stay awake next time! lol. Depending on your for good first hand reports. lol. Sounds similar to what they did when I had radiation in 2000. Except it was down from about
my nipples to just below my nose. They had to make as special addition to the face mask mould to protect my vocal chords from being destroyed.
Good luck on your first zap.
Bootheel, like you are through it, the 16 ounces sounds more in line with what the rad. oncologist told me, he said about
1/2 liter. Hope you get to feeling better soon from it, and more importantly, hope it does the trick.
