Well, I am starting my next stage of PC treatment. My treatment today took much longer today than going forward. They had to perform measurements and get the equipment set up. They took X-ray’s to make sure that my skeletal structure was in the correct place, etc.
I was a little surprised that when they actually started the radiation treatment that they don’t just shoot the radiation in just one place. My treatment includes seven positions that they shoot the radiation for each treatment. My understanding is that this provides a much better coverage of the treated area and at the same time it limits the radiation impacts to the other good tissue.
I am hoping that this solves the problem for good.
In reading some of the other posts, like from David, I still have some concerns, but I will try to keep positive as we continue down this road.
It is nice that we have this place to share.
