Glad it's Friday. Today completed my 2nd full week of SRT. Hardly anyone there today, so I was in and out in about
30 minutes, they had different operators this time, and they didn't have all the alignment problems that went on all week. Don't know what the deal there was.
Back home, nausea once again, and any thing I eat turns liquid real fast if you know what I mean. Baffles me to think that I am only 25% done with this nonsense. Got a ways to go.
Well, don't have to worry about it till Monday afternoon. Monday I see the Uro/Surgeon in the morning, the Radiaton Oncologist in the early afternoon, and then treatment #11.
