Today the radiation clinic was on top of their game. Barely got there on time, they were waiting for me. The supervisor assited for the second day and it was 25 minutes start to finish, one of the fastest. The longest has been 65 minutes.
I pitied the crowd that was waiting for the non-IMRT machines, they said there was a 2 hour holding pattern due to some kind of problem. Guess I won the luck of the draw.
The nausea I was getting isn't so bad at this point, but I run into a solid wall of deep fatigue anywhere from an hour to two hours after I have been zapped.
Be so very glad when this is over with.
