Tommorow will make the halfway point, seemed like a long 4 weeks so far. Today, a miracle happened, the total being on the bed time was 20 minutes, first time that happened. Only took one minor alignment.
At position six, once again, felt a mild burning pain at the SP exit, and told the operators that I wanted a full answer and that I would be reporting it to the dr, again, on Monday. I asked if it were possible if it was like some kind of weird microwave effect, heating up the tube in my. THey said no, unless there was some metal in it, which there isn't.
So once again, left sore at that spot and had to be helped up again. My only fear is that something may get damaged out of this deal.
By Thursday's, the toxicity level with me is high, and even the smell of the place makes me want to barf, but this they said is normal, Friday is my worse day, but then I get the weekend.
The dr. said that normally the 2nd half of treatments is when the side effects pick up. I believe it already, and it was like that in the past.
