Today was just a 20 minute session, was amazed on that part, but did cause moderate pain to the penis area again and a strong burning along my SP cath and its exit from my body. Needed help getting up. Still figthing minor nausea on my way home, rest once more. Gee, still 15 treatments to go, 3 more weeks. My body already feels like its taking a beating, and my mind says enough.
Told the operators today, that I sure hope this works, as far as killing off any remaining PC. It's a long tedious and sometimes painful thing to go through if PC sticks its ugly head up again.
David in SC. If you like my fractions, today's treatment makes it 8/13th done.
