Sonny, your rad clinic is way more efficient than what I went through, but then we were on two entirely different machines and protocal.
Glad you got it done today. Our clinic isnt
open on weekends, so there would never be a Saturday make up. Also, you mentioned two in one day? Just based on my experience, that would be pushing a lot.
You are doing great, hope you continue to. But for the average person, the toxcity build up takes a good couple to three weeks, so while you feel great now, just don't be disapointed if you start feeling it later. Not trying to jinx you, just being honest.
Was also glad that Lynn is doing well with hers too.
Just like I did, you are knocking it off a chip at the time.

Tommorow will be one week since my 39th and final zap was over. I basically feel as weak and sore as I did last week, the only difference is no more of that searing burning pain through my SP cath. I can tell its getting near time to change out the cath for a fresh one ,as the number of spasms has been increasing both in quantity and severity. My poor bladder is the real victim here, lol.
